Impossible to say...: You've given us too little information, ; no medical history, to draw any conclusion as to whether the bulges you describe are even related. It's understandable to fear an exam (after all you don't know what they'll find), but further delay means you're just waiting to get help ; start treatment for a problem that can easily be fixed now. Don't let fear hold you back--go get it checked out please. ...Read more

Sometimes a vein injury will cause the valve in the vein to rupture leading to varicose vein formation or even to clotting of the vein. If you have a vein problem then see a vein specialist for a full venous evaluation. ...Read more

I have a huge bulge on my spine where the neck joins the shoulder ball of both are bulging and the top of my foot has a bulge?

Foot bulge: I agree with dr. Colen. From the standpoint of your foot, common 'bulges' may be a plantar fibroma if its on the bottom of your foot and is firm but not bony. This is a benign mass with a scar tissue like consistency. Otherwise it really depends on specifically where the bulge is located. I would go see my colleague dr. William r. Adams in paducah. ...Read more

You may have a ganglion cyst on top of your foot or you may still have hematoma or seroma that has not resolved. A diagnostic ultrasound may help make the diagnosis. ...Read more

Sounds possible: The disc is material between vertebral bodies in the lumbar spine. Nerves travel in a central canal behind the vertebral body and nerves leave the central canal through foramina. When the disc bulges it can contact the nerves either in the central canal or in the foramina as the nerves leave the central canal. ...Read more

Vibrating in left foot. I have spondylosis and a bulging disc. Pain from my back goes down my left leg. Somedays I cant walk or move?

I'm not sure what: The question is. The starting point would be bed rest for a couple of days then physical therapy. If EMG confirms muscle loss in the leg you should consider surgery. I would start the therapy before surgery however to improve your chance of a good outcome. ...Read more

Sciatica: Sciatica pain can be very disabling. Fortunately in most cases it is self limited and may take time. Some patients benefit from traction therapy with combination of muscle relaxers, analgesics (short course of opiates), and anti-inflammatory medication. Acupuncture me be alternative. Epidural treatments may be considered prior to surgical alternatives. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

Bulging disc. My hands feel warm water as not warm enough, my feet as too warm, and my body between. Is it nerve damage?

Bulging disc. My hands feel warm water as not warm enough, my feet as too warm, and my body between. Is it nerve damage?

Hard to say: If the disc is just bulging and not compressing the nerve roots, it is unlikely to be the cause of symptoms and unlikely to cause nerve damage. Also if the bulging disc is in the lower back, you will have symptoms in the leg and feet rather than the arms and hands. A neuropathy is a different problem that is not related to the disc. This is from irritation of the nerves by a systemic process. ...Read more

I have severe numbness on top of my left foot and numbness on the side of my left leg. My MRI says disc bulge abuts the defending nerve roots.

Response: Not sure of your question, but you describe numbness anatomically in a left L-5 distribution, and might expect your MRI to demonstrate compression of left L-5 nerve root. Alternative anatomy might be c/w peroneal compression at lateral knee. An EMG can sort out these questions, and assess severity of nerve compression to guide treatment decisions. ...Read more
