a lot of muscle aches,abdominal pain comes and goes .Muscle aches occur depending on physical activities. L5- S1 lower back herniated disc surgery a year ago.
symptoms don't really suggest a herniated disc or neuralgia. abdominal pain and muscle aches co be related to ur activity and could possibly subside with time if u only have recently started with ur exercises. if u r on the higher side of age beyond 45 yrs. consumption of levocarnitine 500 mg once daily for 3 months and vit. e 400 mg once daily for 2 mths would be of help. need more details
 
How safe is a microdiscectomy? Have I run out of options when I have a herniated disc 5?
Hello, A small portion of the bone over the nerve root and disc material from under the nerve root is removed to relieve neural compression and provide more room for the nerve to heal. Microdiscectomy is typically performed for a herniated lumbar disc and is actually more effective for treating leg pain like radiculopathy than lower back pain. Thank you
