What couls be causing pain in my left lumbar region?

Several things

Lumbar
There are nine structures i nthe back that can cause pain: the ligaments, muscles,bones, nerves, joints,joint coverings(capsules), disc, disc covers(annulus) and skin. So, what brings on the pain and where it is(middle of back, one side or the other,etc.) helps sort that out. Early on, in the first six months, it is uncommon to need any x-ray or other image study. The best bet is a good exam,

Dr. Steven Beer answered:

I have a bulging disc on the left side of the lumbar region that is trapping the nerve that goes down my leg what would you suggest as treatment?

Conservative care

Lumbar
I usually suggest conservative care with physical therapy and possible a epidural cortisone for the majority of my patients. Eighty percent of disk herniations heal without surgery. If, on the other hand you have neurological deficit like weakness or severe sensory loss, then I would consider surgery. In that case I favor minimally invasive discectomy the majority of the time.

Dr. Mark Sacher answered:

Could a ruptured disk in the lumbar region cause neck pain?

Yes.

Ruptured_disk
Yes. I am a chronic pain management specialist. I have had many patients who have ruptured lumbar discs who exhibit thoracic and neck pain on examination. You may need a cervical and/or thoracic MRI to determine if you have concomitant thoracic and neck bulging, protruding, or herniated discs.

14 months ago i fell on an icy sidewalk. A day later, pain began in the lumbar region of my back. Can you break your back with no neuro symptoms?

Yes

Back_pain
If you did fracture one of your vertebrae it would be healed by now. If you still have significant pain you should be evaluated for another cause for your back pain.

Dr. David Brouwer answered:

Is it possible to have infection just n thigh muscles that aches for months? Pain started n groin, pubic bone, lumbar region. pain is gone just thighs

Not infection

Lumbar
No. Infection for months in the thighs is unlikely. More commonly there are nerve-related causes like pinched nerves and lower lumbar spine problems. Also, musculoskeletal causes like myosotis (sometimes due to certain meds or autoimmune) or bone issues can cause chronic pain.
