pudendal issue? or disc problem??

i had my MRI and all they said i have is mild wear and tear changes. Specifically, the following levels:

L4-L5: minimal diffuse disk bulge.

L5-S1: Minimal shallow posterior central disk protrusion..

my question is i have been doing alot of research on pudendal neupathy and slipped discs im wondering
if the 2 are connected or is the slipped disc one issue and the pudendal another?

i have burning pain in the vaginal area also feels like something is stuck in there.;(
also have burning pain in my right foot..feels exactly like the vagina?
my leg feels 'wet' or like there is water in on it..also feels like that in the rectum? almost like someone is dropping water on it??

my bladder HURTS when its full , as i urinate it feels like my bladder is a ballon that is FULL and when being released it HURTS!!! :( then afterwards it burns even more..tested for absolutly everything!! everything is negitive..no yeast,uti bacterial? im at a loss right now. i seen a neuromuscular dr that did a EMG on my leg also a skin biopsy for small nerve fiber damage..so far the emg shows no abnormalities..waiting for the results of the skin biopsy...

any insight on this subject would be great!! is this connected to the discs or am i dealing with a totally different thing?!!

god only gives you as much as you can handle!

    was the MRI done? Are you having any other issues with not being able to empty either your bladder or bowels? Leaking urine or fecal matter? It may be neuropathy but then again it may be something else. Have you consulted with either a board certified ortho or neurosurgeon? If not, you may want to.
    Does the toilet paper feel different than it did previously, either lesser feeling of it or increased? Have you consulted with a urologist or your gyn for ruling out anything going on .
  • i have been to a uryrogyn and they did along with a gyn an explortory vaginal surgery (think they were in the wrong direction) ..yes, to the toliet paper it feels very irritated when i wipe..im not loosing any control of my bladder or bowels..just feels full and burns when i pee..
    your the 2nd person to recommend a ortho dr. so guess thats where im heading thank you!!! :)
