MRI lingo

I recently had an MRI, the report shows the following:

There is a perineural sacral Tarlov cyst at the level of S2 measuring 6 mm. There is no compression deformity or listheses. Marrow signal appears unremarkable. L4-L5 is slightly desiccated. There is mild hypertrophy of the right L5-S1 facet joint.

What does all this mean???? I have almost constant syotic? pain down my leg into my calf. I have needle like pain in my sacrayliac joint and general soreness in lower back. Thank you

For Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis). The silicone insert fits next to the skin. The insert stabilizes the muscles and apply force to relieve epicondylitis.
