I have lower back pain mainly on bum area. I was not able to turn while lying down. Doctor asked me to take scan. The impression is as below
*Straightening of lumbar vertebrae *Mild dorsal bulge at L5-S1 with the call sac compression. No significant canal narrowing. No evidence of neural forminal narrowing/nerve root compression.
*Left sacrumy at sacroiliac joint level show high signal intensity-consider acute sacroiliitis.
Kindly advice on what does all these mean. Is there any thing alarming here. Thank you.

The reasons can be any and needs to be evaluated to exclude, Infection-Inflamation- and Arthritic conditions like Rheumatoid & Ankylosing Spondylitis a rare condition by further investigations.
I sincerely suggest you to consult a Rheumatologist for that.
