I currently have multiple bulging discs with l5s1 being the worst (told a moderate broad based bulge) to be honest I'm not totally sure what this means. I have been told my a specialist dr not a spinal dr tho that I probably don't need surgery atm but spinal injections may help.
I have other issues with my si joints and scoliosis. Also I have spondylosis on my spine.
To be honest i don't know if I should be very concerned or not cause they said I don't need an operation.
My symptoms are back ache. I have problems sitting at all it feels like someone is crushing my spine. I have sciatica with numb toes at times it does srttle at periods. I have pain down my leg and where my si joints are.
Simple tasks are a lot harder now cause it hurts to bend. I am flexible at moving and was told I'm hypermobile. Walking is easy enough for me as long as my sciatica isn't very bad.
I have tried lots of treatments they are ice pack, using heat, traction ( which made my sciatica way way worse), tens machine, exercises from physio and acupuncture (this is the only thing that helped). Oh swimming helps with the pain at times as well.
I have had a local steroid injection which eased the pain for 3 weeks and then it just went back to normal.
I really want to have another baby. So anyone's experience of being pregnant with this problem would be greatly appreciated. I'm only 29 and to be honest I think pregnancy started all these problems but I love kids.
Any tips? Or even just your own experience? Has anyone recovered from bulging discs to the point they are in little pain or even none at all? I'm trying to be patient and hopeful.
