I was wondering if anyone has had these symptoms and found out what it was or have gone through this before?
I'm currently having radiating pain from my lower back into my hips. Off and on throughout the day. (about a 6 on a scale 1-10) Hurts pretty bad to bend over to pick up things off the floor, to do dishes laundry etc. Right leg numb/tingling spots off and on throughout the day. when i sneeze, sciatic pain on right side of butt, only for a few seconds.
Quick history: Feb.09- L5-S1 laminectomy for herniation. March 09- redo same surgery for re-herniation.
Yesterday saw Spine Dr. He did another MRI and compared to my other MRI's. His answer was it could be any of these things and to do core strengthening exercises and just wait it out. He mentioned if i do surgery again, it would be a fusion.
He saw fragments in my disk floating around, he also sees the disk is narrowing, or the space is smaller than my other MRI.
Anyone have this raditating pain into their hips? That hasn't happened to me before and I wonder if it's due to my spine not having that support, or the disk narrowing.
