Family practice: Pain or sensation changes to your vagina and rectum can be from your back. It suggests you have a nerve root impingement from your herniated disk. You need to be evaluated. ...Read more

Bulging Disk (Definition)

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, (methocarbamol) 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

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?

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

I have a herniated disc at l5-s1. I suffer acute back pain crisis frequently. Should I resort to surgery?

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 (acetaminophen) or aleve, nerve blocks, the combination works 80% of the time. ...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

Unlikely: The most common area for back pain due to large breasts is the mid back. It is possible to have low back pain but your area is an unlikely location for breast induced back pain. The only treatment shown to make a long term difference for your problem is a daily home back physical therapy program. ...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

Many treatments: Start with physical therapy and core conditioning. At some point an epidural steroid injection might be helpful. If all else fails and your symptoms impact your activities of daily living, surgery can be curative. I would suggest seeing a spine surgeon with expertise in minimally invasive spine surgery if it comes to that. ...Read more

Can massage therapy be good for L5 s1 3mm retrolisthesis where I have a herniated disc? Is a tens device better therapy?

Can massage therapy be good for L5 s1 3mm retrolisthesis where I have a herniated disc? Is a tens device better therapy?

Both can help: Massage will help with some of the sore muscles that are aggravated by the irritated nerves and the tens unit is very good for pain control by something called "gate theory", both modalities work in different ways and both can be of benefit. Physical therapy is the best for this though, so keep that up! Strengthening the supporting musculature and core will help stabilize the slip and herniation. ...Read more
