I have a bulging disc and degenerative disc disease in my lower back. I pulled a muscle in my lower back can that cause me to have knee pain with move?

I have a bulging disc and degenerative disc disease in my lower back. I pulled a muscle in my lower back can that cause me to have knee pain with move?

Yes: Yes, but @ age 25 deg disc disease is rather uncommon unless other factors involved. Back pain w/ nerve 'pinching' can cause knee pain BUT a good examination / history can normally distinguish between back and related nerve pain and a primary knee problem (tendinitis, kneecap, etc.). My reccommation would be to see a board certified ORS if your symptoms persist. Best of Luck!! ...Read more

My muscle is pulled away from my verterbrea which collapsed 2 disc is this the cause of scheuemann's disease I got hurt at work and they said all that happened wasn't work related due to this scheuemanns disease

Scheuremann's: Scheuremann's disease is the formation of wedge shaped spinal vertebrae. This is caused by uneven vertebral body growth during adolescence. The front of the vertebral body grows slower then the back forming a wedge shape resulting in a hunchback or kyphosis. The cause is unknown. It does not progress after spine growth is complete. It can cause severe back pain, rarely organ and spinal cord problems. Work injuries do not cause schuermann's disease, but it may have caused your problem. Sometimes injuries can cause multiple compression fractures that can be misdiagnosed as schuermann's disease. Work injury can also damage other spine structures like muscles, ligaments and joints causing pain unrelated to the compressed vertebrae (schuermann's disease). Independent on the the presence or absence of schuermann's disease the most important question is did you have back pain prior to the injury. If you did not then something was injured during the injury. You may benefit from a second opinion. Good luck! ...Read more

Yes I have a muscle disease, MG. But if exercise weakens our muscles is it true just laying or sitting around ALSOWeaken them?

You can exercise: Myasthenia Gravis tends to produce a change in the muscle which is very similar to atrophy. Regular, moderate exercise can combat atrophy. Beneficial exercise is repetitive and done in a way that stops short of muscle fatigue. The key is to do something both pleasant and not stressful which will help keep weight down and reaffirm the positive, emotional feelings you attain during exercise ...Read more
