DDD is the wearing down of the disks that are located between each of the vertebra in your back. this occurs when the fluid in the disks diminishes often due to old age or injury. The fluid helps to absorb shock and without it they rub together and cause the disks to wear away. Together it would mean the wearing down of the disks between the 5th lumbar vertabra to the 1st sacral vertabre with a small hernia in the central disk. this would be a total of six disks. Hope this helps
Alzheimer's disease is a form of dementia and affects the brain. It is a degenerative brain disease, and cannot be cured. There are many treatments available for this disease, though. Alzheimer's disease is fatal, and has a few stages of dementia that the patient suffers, from mild dementia symptoms such as a few language problems and small changes in movement, and eventually ends with the patient being completely dependant on the caregiver and death. It was first described by German psychiatrist and neuropathologist Alois Alzheimer in 1906.
The disc between the first and second lumbar vertebrae is a bit wide and has escaped its circling band at one paint. That escape (herniation) is pressing on the sac that surrounds the spinal cord. Disc bulging and herniation are common findings in MRI of both patients with symptoms and patients without symptoms. This finding is not a diagnosis for back symptoms by itself. Your health care provide will put together this information along with your history, physical, and lab tests to determine, if possible, the likely cause for your back pain.
L3 through S1 are parts of the discs in your back going from the lumbar region to the tailbone. Degenerative disc disease is not a true disease. It is caused from age and other factors, in your case loss of fluid that causes these disc to basically crumble/break away. As the discs break away they develop small pockets of air in them and this is called vacuum disc phenomenon because of the way it looks on an MRI, etc. This form of degenerative disc disease is usually suggestive of a more serious disc disorder. Do you smoke? Are you a woman that needs more calcium? Have you had an accident that has affected your back? Do you eat healthy? As with any issue, it is important to go see your doctor and discuss this with him, patient education is one of their jobs, not just diagnosing people, but even a nurse will help you. Go to the doctor if you have any changes, difficulty moving, numbness in legs, etc. As discs degenerate they can herniate on nerves causing pain and numbness throughout your legs, etc. This needs to be assessed by a qualified physician. But rest assured 82% of americans have degenerative disc disease, I'm a 32 yo male and I have it, my mom has it, and my sister has it. Good luck to you. Kennyz79@gmail.com
I recently went to CDC (central disease center) and a disease that was really big during the 1900's was smallpox. It was very deadly and tragic. Luckily, there is no more small pox carried around the world today, you could say it's "extinct" but the CDC does carry it in their labs. This is a very cool disease to look into. Hope this helped!Gabby, from GA
