Hello everybody!
I'm a 50 years old female. I always practiced sports and I'd been going to the gym, assiduously, for more than 5 years. Like 7 months ago I was running on the streets and I felt a sudden pain around the lower buttock and right hamstringing. It was very painful the following day to the point to make me limp. After that my life has changed. I have a almost permanent pain in the right groin that goes toward the rectum and becomes unbearable when sitting for long periods. An MRI was done and the report states as impression: L5-L1 right paracentral disc herniation with involvement of right S1 nerve root.
I used cold and hot compression, Ibuprofen 800 mg, TEN units therapy, you name it. Some days the pain is not that bad but is always there.
Any suggestion with that diagnosis? Thank you in advance
