Hi guys I was wondering if anyone had the same issues. I have had pain in my lower back due to a herniated disc for the last six months. At the same time the anxiety issues I have been dealing with for the last 10 years crept back up again. It seems that every time my anxiety acts up so does my back or neck pain. So I really thought at first it wasn't A structural problem. I know a lot of people have herniated discs that don't have symptoms. So I waited it out for the last six months and took an antidepressant which usually helps my anxiety get in check. It didn't do great this time but it was tolerable. So after I thought the pain wasn't from the anxiety, I ended up having a microdiscemtomy on my L5 S1 because I figured at this point it really was structural and it couldn't hurt to get the pressure off my nerve. Now it's about two weeks after the surgery and although the surgery wasn't so bad I still have the same pain in my heel of my foot and sometimes in my leg which I had before. I am just wondering if anyone has pain that they can relate to anxiety or depression. And if so if there is any thing that's helped you?
