Herniated Disc At L5 S1 Caused Me To Have Pain In Vagina At Night
I have l5-s1 herniated disk. For two days I have this buzzing vibrating around my vagina. Lots of low back pain with it. Can it be from my back?
Wear and tear can cause degeneration in the vertebral column, and cause discs to deteriorate. The supportive basket, nucleus fibrosis develops small tears. A bulge is minimal perhaps a few millimeters, and is clinically insignificant, but additional disc displacement such as protrusion or herniation may compress ...Read more
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

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.
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

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

I'm 5'4, 145lbs, size 36dd. Is there any possibility my boobs contributed to my herniated disc at l5-s1 and spinal stenosis? Would reduction help?
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

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?
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

19 y o athlete on scholarship who has L5 s1 herniated disc and has tried conservative tx of pt, epidural and meds and rest with no significant relief?
? MRI done:
Large disc herniations with neurological signs or symptoms may require surgery - an MRI can give a good idea of the prognosis - most disc herniations will heal with time.
I have used inversion tables with excellent success in many cases of back pain - chronic seems to respond better than acute but worth a try. The is is a well-studied but underutilized modality. ...Read more
