MRI in Philippines Hospital
You may find this article interesting as it appears your MRI has eliminated nerve damage in the spinal cord...
Since you have been a very active walker/runner, another cause for your pain may be this:
The cyst you may refer to could be a tendon knotting up or muscle knotting up and putting pressure on your sciatic nerve. Very hard to diagnose but can be theraputically treated (Massage, non-steroidal injection to reduce inflammation, and /or accupuncture, accupressure).
The Chinese Filipino Hospital in Baguio has an MD who is an expert accupuncturist and Chinese medicine practitioner. For pain management he might be worth the consult now that you have an MRI to show him.

10 Dollars per doctor visit here in the Philippine has me encouraged, I can continue to tap into the collective intelligence until I find answers.
I truly believe all medicine is about trial and error, slowly we check off all possible problems and hope to narrow in on the one real problem.
I keep thinking to myself, a doctor should be a great mechanic on his or her car, if they cannot repair their car, a rather simple machine, I feel it may be hopeless to help me repair my body.
Scoliosis ? Oh Snickers ! Did you skip that part ? I got that. It does not get better. In fact it gets worse but you can live with it is the good news. The bad is your never going to play shortstop for the Yankees EVER! forget it kid, your toast. Better learn how to make a website and sell dreams.

Thanks Alot Andy for this post as my wife and I are planning to take three days for an Executive Check-up at ST Lukes ( USA Embassy approved located in Quezon City ) of maybe at our nearby San Juan De Dios hospital just down the street on Roxas Blvd. Have been ed by ST.Lukes already P19,000+ for males and P21000+ for females on an OUT Patient basis ( staying inside raises the cost by 4 TIMES??). Thanks to you I will ask about the cost and purposes of having an MRI and If its included in the package and if not how much additional cost. Over the last ten years I have had my share of ACHES and pains, researched each myself and luckily eventually each source of pain became healed and functional again. ( Aging isnt for whimps ). You are in MUCH BETTER shape than I am or have ever been since HS althletics anyway. Im back in Manila for awhile attacking all the eye sores and various renovation projects here at our Townhouse Hotel / Hostel Manila.
