Herniated disk is also known as Bulging disk. Herniated disk is a medical condition in which the gel like disk between the bones of the spine squeezes out of its center position.

What would you suggest for tight muscles caused by tension...and I also have a herniated disc at L5 S1 and suffer with sciatica. Neck position for sle?

Muscle tension: If you wish to avoid taking muscle relaxants like flexeril or robaxin, consider stress management therapy. Wearing a soft cervical collar off and on takes pressure of the neck. For sciatic pain which is chronic, epidural corticosteroid injections and/or surgery may be needed and follow up with a neurosurgeon is advisable. ...Read more

Do a recent c5-c6 herniated disc with spondylosis and l5-s1 prolapse disc with spondylosis cause symptoms similar to heart attack?Chest pain& fatigue

Not usually. See MD: A cervical disc on the left can cause pain in to left shoulder/scapula and in to the arm. The pain can give a patient fatigue if sleep is impaired. The heart should definitely be evaluated as soon as possible, though, as that could be potentially be life-threatening. ...Read more

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.

In a way: The constipation probably did not cause the herniation all by itself. Disk degenerative (and herniation) can occur in your age group (more common in those about 10 or more years older), and is not rare. 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

Can a herniated disk in l5/s1 cause pressure in the foot or trouble with the toes when walking?

Can a herniated disk in l5/s1 cause pressure in the foot or trouble with the toes when walking?

Yes: L5-s1 disk herniation can irritate either the L5 or s1 nerve root. Nerve irritation can cause leg pain, weakness, numbness. These symptoms can radiate down to the foot. This might affect your toes when walking. See your doctor, who can decide if MRI is needed, and if you need treatment. ...Read more

Hello i recently had a herniated disc at l5/s1 and had surgery to remove the piece pinching my siactic nerve but my pain is worse than before surgery ?

Postop pain: If the surgery was yesterday or within the last week, persistent pain can be seen. Typically the pain resolves quickly. But if you have persistent pain running down the leg and medication is not helping you may have a recurrent disk. Another imaging study may be helpful. More likely this is just residual nerve root irritation from compression followed by surgery. ...Read more

I have a herniated disc at l5-s1. I suffer frecuently strong back pain. Planning to have surgery but i'm not sure what to do. What do you recommend?

Back surgery!!!: When faced with this question know that not all back pains are caused by a herniated disc & not all herniated discs require surgery. Guided pt, injections & other options may help. In severe cases, in cases where conservative care failed, in cases with neurological deficit, surgery may be the best & only option. If surgery needed, ask questions; don't be afraid to get pain relief sooner than later. ...Read more

Sciatica: True sciatica is leg pain that shoots from back, down the leg past the knee. This mimics the path of the sciatic nerve, thus it's name. Young patients more likely to have herniated disc. Older patients, pressure from arthritic spurs. All can be treated non-surgically if not getting worse. Physical therapy, tylenol or aleve, nerve blocks, the combination works 80% of the time. ...Read more
