Disc herniation : A herniation in the back does not coupe breast pain. That may have different cause.

Are there GI problems that can cause a herniated disk at l5-s1? Like chronic constipation? I'm only 25 female and don't know how i got herniated disk.

Are there GI problems that can cause a herniated disk at l5-s1? Like chronic constipation? I'm only 25 female and don't know how i got herniated disk.

The constipation may have caused you to strain, and that could have aggravated the rupture or caused a degenerated disk to rupture (herniate). ...Read more
