Brief Answer: Seems you have developed acute disc bulge again Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. From description it seems you have developed acute disc bulge again. Your current treatment plan is correct. You have to take bed rest for two days. Do physiotheraphy exercises to strengthen the back as adviced by your doctor or physiotherapist. Kindly note that exercises only be done when it doesn't hurt. Having known this basic anatomy, you must avoid any activity that aggravates the condition, like bending forward and lifting heavy objects, sitting long hours on computer, inappropriate sitting posture, etc. Adequate rest and proper nutrition is equally important. Drink lots of fluids since dehydration affects the disc. Go for recent MRI to see severity of bulge. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care
