I have been diagnosed with a herniated disc of the s5/L1 vertabrae and a radial tear. I have just recently started getting terrible stomach pain. I thought it was gas however it is now 5 days later and I still have the pain. Unfortunately I cant get into see my docter until 2 weeks. Is it possible that this lower abdominal pain is being caused by the herniated disc? Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.
