Yes and no: Herniated disks and various pain syndromes are certainly related. Do you know why your liver enzymes are high? Please make sure you are not taking too much tylenol (acetaminophen) or tylenol (acetaminophen) containing products, as tylenol (acetaminophen) overdose can cause elevated liver enzymes. Hepatitis c can cause high liver enzymes as well as muskuloskeletal pain.
