Paracentral disc protrusion: Obviously you saw a specialist, your condition requires removal of the protrusion, as is beginning to compress the spine. And the greater occipital nerves. I noted your medications. Please take it seriously, see a orthopedic surgeon, get his opinion. Now days surgery is minimally invasive, and the results are good. Make an appointment today.
