I have a gap in l4 and l5 gets lot of pain while sitting for long period
Thanks for the query
I dont exactly know what you mean by gap between 14 and 15. I am guessing you are having chronic back pain. Here are my suggestions to you
1. Do not sit for more than 30 min, take small strolls around the office and strech
2. Tab Naproxen is an ideal drug for pain, take once a day for 3 days. DO not take it for more than 5 days
3. Core muscle exercises
my lower discs L4 & L5 are losing fluid. Im barely able to walk and now I'm starting to get migraines every other day. what can I do?
Migraine and back issues are unrelated. Based on your back symptoms, you can choose to see a doctor. And for migraines, as they are happening every day it would be worthwhile to start preventive medications.
