Can you have lumbosacral neuritis without herniated disk?

Can you have lumbosacral neuritis without herniated disk?

A lot of terms: Neuritis/Radiculitis are synonyms suggesting sciatica pain but without significant exam findings. You can have tears in the disc causing chemical inflammation rather than mechanical irritation. Radiculopathy is a term for sciatica that causes, numbness, weakness and reflex changes on exam. Sciatica is term for all of the above but generally includes back and leg pain. ...Read more

Definition of lumbosacral neuritis?

See below: Neuritis means inflammation of a nerve, but we would not usually describe lumbosacral nerve problems by that term. Might instead use radiculitis or radiculopathy. Not sure of what context this was introduced, but perhaps this refers to pain radiating from your spine down a leg. If occurring after back surgery, perhaps post-op scarring or arachnoiditis. ...Read more

Is it possible for lumbosacral neuritis to get worse if left untreated?

Is it possible for lumbosacral neuritis to get worse if left untreated?

Depends on the cause: Neuritis refers to inflammation of a nerve, in this case of the nerves at the bottom end of the spine. Depending on the reason for such an inflammation it could get worse, may be self-limiting or may get better with just waiting. If the reason for example is a bacterial infection then under most circumstances treatment would be advised. This is less clear for other reasons. ...Read more

Hi, sorry: Hi, sorry to hear about your problems. First of all, try not to worry. Yes, paralysis is possible with cervical spondylolysis, but it is rare and usually does not occur overnight. Having said that, it is difficult to advise based on the histroy alone. Physical examination and MRI report would be needed to get a better picture of your problem. The pain does not always correlate with the findings. In other words, many people have severe pain and little pathology or a lot of pathology and mild pain. It sounds like your pain is not acute but rather chronic. Medications do tend to stop working over time and sometimes they need to be changed or replaced by others to control pain. Increased pain alone does not indicate that something terrible is going on. Watch for weakness in the arms or legs, changes in your bowel/bladder function, and, if you need to, get a second opinion. Good luck. ...Read more

What is lumbar hmnp protrusion with sciatica and radiculitis?

What is lumbar hmnp protrusion with sciatica and radiculitis?

Herniation/Sciatica: The disc is like a jelly filled donut. If the donut is compressed too much the jelly leaks out through a break in the donut's bread. The same is true with a disc, the tear is caused by the compression resulting in a herniation (protrusion) and the jelly (inside portion of the disc) is either leaking out or trying to get out. Radiculitis suggests pain without any deficits noted on exam. ...Read more

I was diagnosis w/ lumbar spondylolysis, bilateral nerve root impingement and radiculitis w/ L5 being slipped forward. Surgery or long-term pain management?

Surgery: Sometimes it solves with pain control, pain procedures (epidurals w/local anesthetic and steroids). After reducing the inflammation the disk if it is intact could slip backwards in place. The spondilosis is a chronic condition similar to the osteoarthritis that can not be cured like the disk herniation. I think you meant spondylolisthesis. Surgery can be efficient but also can have complications. ...Read more
