Is It Common To Have Abdominal Pain When I Have A Low Back Disc Rupture
Read below: It depends on the level of the disc that is injured. It is not common to have abdominal pain with a herniated disc, however if the disc that is herniated is a upper lumbar disc it could possibly pinch a nerve and cause referred pain to the abdomen. I would first check for other causes for abdominal pain, side effect of meds, other gastrointestinal disorder. Discuss with your md. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not common but..: Possible, i guess. I would look for another cause of your abdo pain unless it clearly started with your back injury and is clearly tied to your back (radiates from the back to abdomen, hurts worse when the disc is compressed, etc) in theory a disc pushing on a nerve running from your abdomen to your spine could give you abdo pain. Other symptoms? Nausea? Cramping? Bowel changes? See an md. ...Read more

Theoretic speak : two do not have direct correlation, but pain, especially if great enough, causes adrenaline and cortisol to rush out from adrenal gland. can lead to blood vessel spasms-contract and constrict. Which can, in theory, cause aneurysm to be more susceptible to these physiologic fluctuations. Aneurysms are areas where blood vessel wall is thinner because of the "bubble" effect. low on possibility though ...Read more
