A 46-year-old female asked:

Is it possible to have abdominal discomfort and bloating with bulging l3-4 and l5-s1 disc and herniated l4-5 disc?

No.: Herniated discs at that level would produce symptoms in the lower extremities. Bloating and abdominal discomfort are not typically associated with disc problems at all.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
