Brief Answer:
Seen the report.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for sending the report and picture of MRI lumbar spine.

There is no increase as compared to the previous MRI.

As of now, you can try conservative treatment with medications and physiotherapy.

For relief of nerve pain in the leg, you may take pregabalin or gabapentin capsules.

Physiotherapy techniques such as IFT, ultrasound and back extension exercises would also be useful.

There is no need of surgery at present.

The bulging disc is not compressing CES, and hence, there is no need to worry about it.

I gave birth like five months ago but my vagina aches, when I sleep in low air condition or under a fan? What might be causing the vagina aches. It is very mild and if you don’t really pay attention to it, you might not hear a thing.
