Was there any triggering factor like trauma, abnormal posture to cause the pain?
yes. It was started when I was in Uttrakhand in Oct 2009. I took MRI and the complaint was L3 & L4 - Extrusion- Disk Bulge and took medicine and theraphy and got allright.
So, you are already diagnosed with prolapsed disc.
Avoid back bending and heavy weight lifting.
Yes. Sorry it is not L3 & L4 it is L4-L5- The MRI LUMBNO SACRAL SPINE REPORT as follows. This is done on 10th Oct2009.
MRI of the Lumbosacral spain reveals subtotal disc extrusion at L4 -L5 . L5-S1 level with posterocentral disc bulge at this level.
You need to consult a spine surgeon/Neurosurgeon for detailed evaluation.
