Can breathlessness be caused by dislocated discs in the lumbar region ?
I have two dislocated disc in my lumbar part of my back I have had this problem for atleast 6 years, the pain is getting worse and medicine doesn t work like it use to, but now I have shortness of breath I have to sit up when I am laying down cause it feels like I cant breath. Could this be caused by my back.
Thanks for query,
Your breathing trouble and back pain has no relation.
There may be some cardiac problem for breathing trouble.
Go for ECG.
Go ofr x ray chest
After reports treatment can be advised.
ok and bye.
