Benign hemangioma

I have chronic back pain radiating to lower limbs. I took physiotherapy for 2 weeks for scitica and treatment for vit D3(8.5) But my pain increased to a level where i was not able to get up on my feet. So I went for mri L-s spine and was diagnosed with hemangioma( focal T1,T2 heperintense lesion involving right aspect of L1 vertebral body). My pain is increasing.What does this say.?

You have a pain which may be of neurological origin. But, more than the MRI finding, it's a detailed neurological examination which can clearly tell so. As far as the hemangioma is concerned, based on it's exact location, it's symptoms may range from being completely harmless to a less likely possibility of affecting a nerve in the nearby location. And many lesions can be hyperintense. So, need the film to comment better.
