I have back pain problem (disc herniated) problem. What is the cure?

See pain specialist: The treatment of back pain rests on finding the precise cause of the pain. Although you have a herniated disc (seen on mri), this may not be causing the pain. The way to find out is to anesthetize the structure thought to be the cause and ask the patient if the pain was relieved. If so, the diagnosis is confirmed and treatment plan can be arranged.

I have done scan and X-ray all showed that I have no problem but I still have this backpain. What could be the cause? What else can I do?

Scan: Do you mean you had an MRI scan? Some people will have a ct scan, which is still not terribly sensitive in picking up causes for back pain like an MRI is. If you have had a normal MRI of the area of the spine that is hurting, we start thinking of pain generators outside the musculoskeletal skeletal system like a kidney stone, aneurysm or an infection. ...Read more
