I have a bulging disc and degenerative disc disease in my lower back. I pulled a muscle in my lower back can that cause me to have knee pain with move?

Yes. yes, but @ age 25 deg disc disease is rather uncommon unless other factors involved . Back pain w/ nerve 'pinching' can cause knee pain BUT a good examination / history can normally distinguish between back and related nerve pain and a primary knee problem( tendinitis , kneecap ,etc.). My reccommation would be to see a board certified ORS if your symptoms persist . Best of Luck!!

I have random tingling inner thighs, sides of knees and calves with Increased low back pain. I have severe degenerative disc disease S1-L5; related?

The symptoms. you describe could be due to irritation of the L-5 nerve root.

Maybe the calf pain. Medial thigh pain is a higher dermatome, usually L3 or L4 nerve roots. Buttock, posterior-lateral thigh, posterior calves however are consistent with S1, sometimes L5 radiculopathy (tingling, burning, aching, pulling).

With degenerative disc disease, facet arthrosis, nerve compression, buldging discs lumbar and cervical regions, synovial cyst posterior lumbar region in spine, continueum spasms, the need of surgery is the option as of now. I have been through all treatme

Unsure of question. Most surgeons exhaust non-operative care before recommending surgery. Non-operative care can include medications (anti-infammatory arthritis type medicine or pain medications), physical therapy, activity modification, exercise, bracing, chiropractic care, interventional pain management (injections), or alternative medical approaches.

I'm 56 y-o menopause female, degenerative disc disease in back, 90 lbs. Overweight w-bad pain in 1 knee when I walk, can't lose wt. What can I do?

Start somewhere! I am reading between the lines here, but you sound a little overwhelmed. Losing weight will help your back and your knee, but it's hard to do when it's so painful to move. You might want to see if there's a water aerobics class in your area. Exercise in water is great because we are practically weightless in water. You may even want to talk about weight loss surgery options. But get started now. Read more...
I would recomend --- Seeing a dietician to eat properly and healthy, so you could lose weight. That would also decrease the knee pain, of course, depending on how much you lose. Using a walker or a quad cane will also reduce the pain. If the arthritis in the knee is really bad ; with no relief from the conservative measures, you will certainly benefit from a total knee replacement surgery. Read more...

I have degenerative disc disease in neck and 2 bulged disks in lower back. Afraid of surgeries. Am still at college, so what can I do to help pain?

Realistic goals. Pain is part of life and you first have to accept that you will not be 100% pain free. Physical therapy, proper exercises, antiinflammatories, all conservative. Depending on severity of discs, a pain provider can do some interventional injections and procedures. Start with your primary care and take it from there. Read more...
