Hi, not sure if this is what I have but maybe you can help? I had a MRI on my lower back a few weeks ago and am waiting on an appointment to go back to the hospital for my results.

Yesterday I went to my GP as my back is really sore, and my GP told me the following by reading my MRI -

He told me that I have bulging discs in my lower back, I have thinning of the vertabrae, last few vertabrae are fusing together and have limited fluid on these vertabrae. He did not tell me what this condition is or outcome etc as he said I will have to wait to see my Ortho surgeon when I go to see him in a few weeks.

Does anyone else have this condition? Could this be ankylosing spondylitis?
