What is the treatment for having 2 thecal cyst at s2 (racepinephrine) n a disc bulge at l4/l5 with annular fissure centrally. No nerve root compression or narrowing?

Not clear: Benign cysts around nerve roots, called tarlov cysts generally do not need treatment. Disc bulges and annular tears are not unusual in people in the 5th and 6th decades of life without symptoms. None of these dictate treatment. Symptoms should be evaluated by an appropriate health care professional. ...Read more

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Can minor L5 s 1 disc bulge cause a Bartholin's cyst back pain increasing over 10 weeks. Had a fall now worried?

Can minor L5 s 1 disc bulge cause a  Bartholin's  cyst back pain increasing over 10 weeks. Had a fall now worried?

Completely unrelated: The bartholin cyst is not related to the disc bulge at all. A minor disc bulge is very common and likely not the cause of the pain as well. A fall in someone 35 years old would more commonly cause inflammation in the facet joints. Seek out a physiatry physician or other spine specialist. ...Read more

Interpret-please.mild broad-based disc bulge L5-S1 may contact S1 nerve root emerging from dural sac. 2 nerve roots don't appear compressed.

Back pain: It means the person who got this done was complaining of back pain probably with some radiation down one of the legs or perhaps even both. Symptoms of numbness, tingling, or burning pain may also be part of this picture. The MRI report is suggesting there is a bulging disc, which is not a hernia, which may be causing irritation of nerve fibers while not physically squeezing them. ...Read more

LP: Your disc bulge has nothing to do with the LP. The LP can be done at any level as it is being done only to obtain a specimen of the CSF for analysis. Doing it at L5-S1 will not irritate your disc. ...Read more

Mri shows disc bulge at l4/l5. Will disc return to normal position with time n stretches? What caused it?  Does it mean more danger of it herniating?

Part of Aging Proces: Bulging discs are very common especially as we age. That same MRI probably also showed some loss of water content in the discs. Bulging discs are usually asymptomatic and don't go on to herniate. Bulging discs do not return to a non-bulging configuration. ...Read more

Broad based disc bulge between L5-S1 and L4-L5 has a a broad based central disc protrusion whay am I in pain?

2 bulging discs: in lumbar spine. these discs may push against nerves thereby causing pain. Non-steroidal pain relievers may help. Physical therapy may help. In general, most patients improve within 6 weeks to 3 months. Surgery is often a last resort and may not provide long term relief. Be patient and follow your doctor's instructions.

Generalized disc bulge with right posterior paracentral type of disc protrusion of L4/L5 I.V disc, canal area 112.11sq.mm?

Disc protrusion: From your question, it sounds like you have a focal right paracentral (meaning to the right of midline) disc protrusion (disc poking out) superimposed on a general disc bulge of the disc located between the L4 and L5 lumbar vertebral bodies, that pokes out into the central spinal canal by 1.2 x 1.1 cm. I'm not sure what your question is. ...Read more

Lifestyle adjustment: Assuming typical back pain treatment includes: back support, exercise regimen, good sleep, weight control, not smoking, heat/ice applications as well as avoiding prolonged sedentary positions with activity modification.

L5-S1 Mild to moderate disc height loss. Disc bulge is worst centrally but otherwise relatively symmetrical. The meaning of this statement?

L5-S1  Mild to moderate disc height loss. Disc bulge is worst centrally but otherwise relatively symmetrical. The meaning of this statement?

Answer: At the L5-S1 level, you appear to have a degenerating disc which is bulging, which means minor, and no description of herniation or nerve compression. This may merely be a manifestation of "wear and tear" and unlikely to explain back pain, if that is your complaint. ...Read more

Slight disc bulge at l4/l5. Treatment needed? Will traction make disc go back in? Or just back exercises will do?

Integrative care: A herniated disc can cause back pain as well as foot pain by physically pressing on the nerves that travel to the foot and by irritating them through the extrusion of pro-inflammatory disc materials. Physical therapy and other conservative measures, including medication management, are considered first line treatment. If these fail, your physician may recommend epidural steroid injections. ...Read more

Non significant disc bulges & minor postero central annular fissures at l3-l4 and l4-l5. Small circumferential disc bulge at l5-s1. Please advise. ?

49 year old spine: Sounds like you have the spine of a 49 year old. It is very common to have minor abnormalities of the discs as you get older. These only become significant when there is a neurologic deficit or pain which directly correlates with the findings on mri. With the findings on this MRI no neurologic findings are expected. Pain is possible but it will be difficult to blame your discs. ...Read more

I have a disc bulge in l4/l5 which goes to the left but the majority of my symptoms are to the right. the dr says this is abnormal. is this right?

Disc bulge & symptom: Yes, this is unusual. If the bulge is on one side, most of the time, it would cause symptoms on that side, if it affects a nerve root. What are the symptoms? A disc bulge is not necessarily the cause of symptoms, unless it impinges on a nerve root. Sometimes it is not the disc but the nucleus pulposis or disc jelly material that causes the problem. ...Read more

Bulging Disk (Definition)

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
