L5-S1 disc bulge: An l5-s1 disc can have a full spectrum of the symptoms due to minor bulges from subtle tears in the annulus fibrosis to full blown disc hernia hernia causing more severe and more persistent symptoms.

Got a small lump on my tibia two weeks ago. It moves with the skin, not attached to the bone. Causes other pain in my leg, as high as my glute.

Got a small lump on my tibia two weeks ago. It moves with the skin, not attached to the bone. Causes other pain in my leg, as high as my glute.

How small?: If not attached to bone, this my be a skin cyst or small skin growth called dermatofibroma. It would be unusual for a small growth on the tibia, to cause pain going up to your glut in your buttocks. IS it red or warm? Any pain that persists deserves to be examined by a docctor. Read more

I reherniated the same disc, L5, S1, 8 months after a microdiscectomy, and now have a lot of pain in my left leg and glute after sleeping. What do I do?

I reherniated the same disc, L5, S1, 8 months after a microdiscectomy, and now have a lot of pain in my left leg and glute after sleeping. What do I do?

Varies: Approximately 80-90 percent of herniations will heal over time, even in patients with previous surgery. Choices would essentially be the same as before you had surgery: give time with possibly use of medications, or do noninvasive treatments to see if they will help (therapy, chiropractic, traction, modalities), or do interventional procedures such as esi, or consider more surgery.

Pain/tightness top of glute from LHS coccyx to hip. Not radiating down leg. Worse when arch with sway back- like sharp nerve pain deep in glute? Why?

Piriformis Syndrome: You appear to be describing symptoms that can correlate with prirformis syndrome, whereby the sciatic nerve can become trapped and compressed between the short hip external rotator muscles. The diagnosis is often made as a diagnosis of exclusion after true sciatica or a nerve compression at lumbar spine region is ruled out. Thorough exam by orthopaedic surgeon focusing on hip pain Read more

Had a laminectomy/disectomy in dec 2014 for a pinched sciatic nerve in my right leg 2 month later I have a dural leak and pain/numbness in labia/glute?

What: Is your question?
The pain/numbness is NOT in the usual distribution of your sciatic nerve. rather it is in the area of the Pudendal nerve! You NEED to speak with your surgeon and perhaps consult with a Neurologist!
Hope this helps!
Good Luck!

What are some glute/thigh exercises that won't damage my knees?

What are some glute/thigh exercises that won't damage my knees?

Correct technique: Correct technique is the correct way to prevent joint, ligament, and other structure injury. Most exercises, including lifting, is safe provided you use correct technique. Get a coach, start with low weights/high repetitions, and avoid things that cause severe or sharp pain. Lunges, starting without weight, are great for the gluts/thighs. When doing this, keep the front knee behind the toes Read more

I have severe LB/glute pain primarily on left side. L I noticed a (fluid like) lump on sacrum bilaterally but larger on left. What could this be?

Get a scan: The differential diagnosis would include fat necrosis, partial or full disc herniation, sacrococcygeal mass, cutaneous tumors, and poorly exercised paraspinal muscles. I suggest you see a physical therapist to have the area evaluated and go from there, if the answer is not simple an MRI may be needed to identify what lies beneath the skin for diagnosis and therapy Read more

Is rabies vaccination on glute region is of no use?

Can I use lidocane on a scar from a deep cut through my glute muscle?

Ans: Why would you? I assume you are saying you still have pain from the injury? The lidocaine will not go through the scar tissue. Try more of a rub like voltaren (diclofenac) gel Read more
