Welcome to Spine-Health


It would be very helpful if you could provide us with more details. So many times we read about members who have different tests and they all come back negative. The more clues and information you provide, the better chances in finding out what is wrong,

Here are some questions that you should answer:
  • - When did this first start?- Was it the result of an accident or trauma?- What doctors have you seen? (Orthopedic, Neurosurgeon, Spine Specialist, etc)- What Conservative treatments have you had? Which ones?- What diagnostic tests have you had? And their results (MRI, CTScan, XRay, EMG, etc)- What medications are you currently using? (details, dosage, frequency, etc)- Has surgery been discussed as an option? (If so, what kind)- Is there any nerve pain/damage associated?- What is your doctor’s action plan for treating you?

Providing answers to questions like this will give the member community here a better understanding
of your situation and make it easier to respond.

Please take a look at our forum rules: Forum Rules

Please remember that no one at Spine-Health is a formally trained medical professional.
Everything that is posted here is based on personal experiences and perhaps additional research.
As such, no member is permitted to provide
  • - Analysis or interpretation of any diagnostic test (ie MRI, CTscan, Xray, etc)- Medical advice of any kind- Recommendations in terms of Medications, Treatments, Exercises, etc

What could be good for someone could spell disaster for another.
You should also consult your doctor to better understand your condition and the do’s and don’t’s.




It is very important that new members (or even seasoned members) provide others with details about their condition(s). It is virtually impossible to help another member when all the details we have are
I’ve had this for years, it hurts, I cant move my shoulder – what could this be, what treatment should I get?

Diagnosing spinal problems can be very difficult. In many ways its like a game of clue. Especially, when the diagnostic tests come back negative – no trouble found! Then its up to the patient and the doctor to start digging deeper. The doctor is like a detective. They need clues to help them move along. So, you as the patient need to provide the doctor with all sorts of clues. That is like it is here. Without having information about a condition, its impossible for anyone here to try to help.

Specific comments :

Please give us more details per above

Personal Opinion, not medical advice :

    I have MRI and CT that show my disc herniation ot L5-S1 paramedian.


    - When did this first start?
    My trauma is around may 2013 and my pain start around beginning of may 2014.
    - Was it the result of an accident or trauma?
    It was trauma by deadlift with heavy weights.
    - What doctors have you seen? (Orthopedic, Neurosurgeon, Spine Specialist, etc)
    I make consultation with orthopedic, neurosourgeon, neurologist and my gp.
    - What Conservative treatments have you had? Which ones?
    In 2014 i was on magneting ring and ultrasound. This help a lot.
    Make everyday isometric exercises for low back, core, walking,
    - What diagnostic tests have you had? And their results (MRI, CTScan, XRay, EMG, etc)
    I have x-ray showing nothing, CT showing disc herniation l5-s1 august 2014, and february 2015 MRI confirm disc herniation on L5-S1
    - What medications are you currently using? (details, dosage, frequency, etc)
    In 2014, I was on milgamma N, diclofenac and analgin. In accuate phase i refuse to take painkillers.
    Now take only Vitamin B complex.
    - Has surgery been discussed as an option? (If so, what kind)
    - Is there any nerve pain/damage associated?
    I have discomfort only when sit position in right buttock. No low back pain, but this feelin in my cheek is very very annoying and frustrate me. It's imposible to ignore it.
    - What is your doctor’s action plan for treating you?
    Neurosergen told me pain is abstract. She can't be measured. If i make operation they will clear the disc, remove part if have and this is it.

    If I read correctly, you did not have surgery and yet your back pain is gone?
    That's great!

    And now sitting causes your right buttocks discomfort and disappears when standing.

    You could tap my name if interested as I have couple things going on, but one of them is problems with my lower back.
    I do continue to have pain. But I have also experienced sitting, short time like yourself, and when I stood, left side of buttock was numb like. I can't describe feeling. No real pain. But felt funny, numb like.
    I had to mentally be aware that my left side was still there.

    It did make walking a bit of a challenge for about 15 minutes. I already walk with a cane.
    My doctor told me that it was part of my lower back condition.

    Since this newer symptom for you, I would certainly let your doctor know.
    Doctor can at the very least, make note of it and help you monitor it.
    I'm not sure how long ago it was that your original pain went away, but maybe need doctor advise for further testing if something has changed since 2014.

    On this site the __search__upper right on page, type in your concern or interest, and you may be led to older posts, article and videos. It's in every person language and easily understood. May be helpful to you.

    I esp like the videos. Very good and the video "library", selection here is huge!
    You may be led to more question, that your doctor may be able to answer.

    Please keep in touch with how you're doing!

  • Yeap, i don't have operation. Don't lose hope and keep searching what work for you best.
    My problem with sitting and buttock discomfort is from may 2014 or early, but i am not very sure. I hope this is not chronic.

    Exactly! I had been in PT for my back. I go to PT for my neck, back, core strengthening...... but this time, I stopped. I had a disagreement with my PT who was leaving anyway. But some of the last exercises she had me doing were laying on my stomach and lift my leg upward. Since my back injury I cannot lift my right leg up behind me. Essentially I'm laying on a mat trying to wag my tail! A muscle in my butt tightens but my leg will not lift- I cannot make it! (But I've had serious injuries, several back surgeries.) I stopped PT 2-3 weeks ago and my buttock above my leg that won't move is in incredible pain- sharp pain! It doesn't feel like muscle pain. If there was a bone I'd swear I broke that! Fortunately many of my friends are doctors so they don't laugh outright at me when I say I have a pain in the ___! I've just been buying pillows to place on my most often used chairs. The pain is seriously intense and I too, I have no idea why!

  • I start to make a lot hamstring streching. This help me, but not remove problem. Please, i have little kid and need to work.
    Can someone explain how long take to heal nerve when disc is herniated. My problem is from 2 years, but process for healing is from 1 year. Do you think i need more time and problem like gone or this is chronic now? When i am on doctor they describe me medicaments, but this dont help only mask. I am pretty sure here have wonderful professionals.
