Thank you for the query.

I would like to know few more things which would help me in suggesting you better:

1.) Do you have numbness or tingling in your lower limbs?
2.) Do you have weakness in your legs?

Your history suggests you have herniated disc secondary to annular disc tear which is present at the level of L4-L5 along with splenomegaly. The tear happens due to regular wear and tear as you age and it is the ageing process. Both these conditions have to be confirmed, Kindly get yourself examined by a Orthopedician and a Physician.

The causes for Splenomegaly could be, infections, if it is working excessively, in filtering or manufacturing blood cells, if there is abnormal blood flow to it, or if it is invaded with abnormal cells or deposits. The cause has to be confirmed, through,

1.) Bloodwork.
2.) Urinalysis.
3.) Ultrasound abdomen.
4.) X XXXXXXX or MRI spine.

Once confirmed, you will be treated accordingly with medications and sometimes Surgery.

In addition to the treatment follow these lifestyle modifications:

1.) Eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and XXXXXXX leafy vegetables.
2.) Apply heat pads or cold packs where you feel the pain.
3.) Avoid excessive bed rest.
4.) Exercise regularly and maintain a healthy weight.
5.) Stick to your treatment plan and go for regular follow up.

Hope I have answered your query, I will be available to answer your follow up queries. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wish you Good Health.

Take Care.

Dr. XXXXXXX Tauseef.
