I have had an MRI in 2014 two years after a road accident. Have had a report that accident caused a disc bulge. But also that it was by no means certain I would have gone on to develop a disc bulge, because of the mild findings of disc degeneration which I believe you get from 40+ years. Every one has disc degenerate. So why in 2016 had another MRI as pain had not got any better worse in fact. Despite no change, according to the spinal specialist. I would have gone on to develop this condition within 3 to 5yrs. Has he got a crystal ball, or can you tell from the MRI if this is the case and why the change of diagnosis. from the previous scan if there has been no change. Still very mild findings.?
