Doctor :   Hi. Thanks for your query. Read and understood your problems. MRI Shows: Early lumbar spondylosis Degenerative d isc disease L5- S1 with posterior disc protrusion at L5-S1 and effacement of anterior epidural fat. Early cervical spondylosis with degenerative disc disease. Normal B/L SI means Sacro-iliac joint and normal hip joints > this may not be the reason for the pains you have in your hips & back.The pains may be due to local muscle spasms. Pain in the legs can be due to nerve compression in the spine. This is not a very major problem. I hope this answers your query.
