What causes pain in back, left leg and groin area while suffering from bulging disc?
Hello. I have been through your question and understand your concern.
Back pain with groin and leg involvement has many causes, but only a few are progressive. You have ruled out most of the serious conditions with the MRI which shows changes within normal range according to your age. Since pain killers have failed so far, I recommend you schedule a neurological consult because it is important to have a detailed neurological examination of the extremities to see if there is any nerve damage. If in doubt the neurologist can suggest you proceed with a nerve conduction study. This would definitely exclude any neurological progressive condition (because the narrowing of the foramina implies that the origin of the nerve might be compressed, thus causing neurological discomfort or damage)
Then you should see an orthopedist to see if there is any arthrosis the origin of your pain.
Hope this helps.
Wish you the best health
