For you folks in the know. My pcp sent me for a mri of the spine and I will ask these questions to the Doc when I go back in a month but want to know your opinions. The Mri found arthritis in my whole spine and DDD L10 and 11 the only back injury I had in service was diagnosed as torn muscles in the same area as the DDD I have now. There has been pain in that area since I hurt it in 88 I never imagined it was nothing other than muscles. So is this a service connected problem from that injury or a misdiagnosis from 88? Funny the pain in the area has stayed in the same place just gotten a little more frequent over the years.
