I had an MRI 10 days after noticing leaking of urine  and strange feelings in the rectum that showed a mild central disc extrusion at L5-S1 without spinal cord compression. I have incontinence and numbness in the groin/genital area. What  is this?

BUT do not delay, get this directly addressed!! ...Read more

But, if your stool is not formed you may have a parasite infection or a food allergy and this needs to be evaluated. ...Read more
