Painful lump near site of L5-S1
I'm new to this group. Introduced myself two weeks ago. I have a broad bulge and herniation at L5-S1 and smaller herniation at L3-4. (I also have cervical problems, but that's not my issue today.)
I have been in pain for 6 months with no significant improvement. When I started PT months back, I noticed a fleshy, movable lump under my skin to the R of my S1. My Pt said it was a benign fatty deposit. Pain Dr. thought it was a muscle spasm. It's size & pain would expand & shrink. After I had my first of 2 steroid injections it disappeared.
I did too much walking/sitting yesterday and now it has re-appeared. Bigger and quite painful to pressure.
Does anyone know what this is? Has anyone had this?
I'm seeing my Pain Dr Friday. I don't think I've ever gotten an answer about this & I'm scared.
