Hello! I'm new to this site. I am 34 years old i have suffered with chronic back pain for the last six years. I have two herniated discs. Two years ago a piece of the disc fell off & was on my sciatic nerve . One year ago I had another MRI & the surgeon didn't see the piece on the sciatic nerve anymore. So the bad news is my numbness is probably permanent . I'm just here to learn anything I can to help me feel better.
