Can anyone give me insight to my MRI?

There is straightening of lumbar lordosis. There is no spondylolisthesis. A hemangioma is seen in the L1 vertebral body. There is otherwise normal marrow signal. The vertebral body and disc heights are preserved. The conus medullaris terminates normally at the L1-L2 level. On the sagittal images there is minimal disc bulging at T10-T11 without spinal canal narrowing. No spinal canal or foraminal narrowing is identified in the lumbar spine. There is minimal disc bulging at L1-L2 and L2-L3. There are mild facet degenerative changes at L3-L4 and moderate facet arthropathy at L4-L5 and L5-S1.

Nothing special. This MRI shows degenerative spine changes. You might start to have back pain in several years. I advise strengthening core muscles

I am also looking at advanced degeneration of my left hip and moderate degeneration in my right hip.  I have a history of pain throughout my neck and back as well as my hips and upper thigh, if that helps.  I'm 43 years old.
