Fouzi I feel your pain.  I have similar situation except they completely missed the herniated disc, report noted no abnormalities and has taken 6 months of using that misread MRI to try and diagnose the cause of my pain.  Have used up all vacation, sick days and have been on disability since April. Went to specialist today with copy of "normal" MRI and it took him less than 5 seconds to identify the problem.  I think you have to experience this insane pain to understand the anger and frustration that even feeling this way for 1 day longer than necessary because a professional did not perform his job correctly.  I recommend anyone experiencing pain of this magnitude insist on a second opinion. The pain is unbearable and I think experiencing a quality of life less than zero is priceless.  It seems like this is happening a lot and no one seems to care.  My fusion surgery L5/S1 is scheduled in ten days.  I hope you are feeling better.
