i have carpel tunnel and bulging disk, but no spinal cord injuries or pinched nerves. is this normal after a massage?

No: Spinal cord injuries, carpal tunnel, nor bulging discs are the direct result of a massage unless you were in a terrible accident on the way. Though some of these symptoms might be aggravated by positioning or deep massage, none should be affected negatively without undue trauma.

See below: You probably had these before the massage, but something may have happened to elevate the symptoms.
