multiple herniated disc on cervival and lumber spine plus dengenrative disc disease

I fell down a flight of stairs in 2012, since then diagnosted with multiple herniated disc on cervical and lumber spine, levels c2-c3 c3-c4 c4-c5 c5 c-6 herniated, plus L4-L5 / L5-L6 S1 with herniation, bulging disc, protuding disc. contact of the cord.recent mri readings are show degenerative disc disease. I have been to thearpy, on many inflamatory medications, pain medications and got two series of 3 epidural injections and nothing is helping. Can someone tell me if there is any relief or will this only become worse.


  • Have you been seen by an ortho or neuro surgeon? It sounds like you've done all the preliminary steps. Surgery may or may not help, but it might prevent some of the things from getting worse. I've been told that everyone over 25 has degenerative discs of some sort (because we all start shrinking). I'm sorry you haven't gotten any relief so far.
    4 level ACDF C4-C7 5-2-11, laminectomy & discectomy L4-L5 1/26/12, ALIF L4-5, L5-S1 12/10/12.
