Going on 27 months of severe sciatica. Could be caused by a L5-S1 disc bulge after moving furniture.
After 3 failed ESI's for L5-S1 nerve impingement I am experiencing a popping sensation in my back when I'm laying on my back and slide my affected leg up my side (figure 4 shape). It's like three distinct pops as I move my leg up. Could this be due to the decrease in bone density due to the ESI or just another stage of ddd? I was 31 and really fit when symptoms first occurred with no previous issues whatsoever. I'm now 33 and just a shell of the man I use to be. I am a combat veteran and former wildland firefighter, untill my injury, now I struggle to walk on a daily basis.
Any insights would be appreciated.
