Hi,Thanks for your query. After going through your query I came to know that you are suffering from disc prolapse and breathing difficulty. Disc prolapse done not cause breathing difficulty. Breathing problem specially coughing can cause pain in back at site of disc prolapse. In my opinion both these problems are separate issue.You can discuss with your treating Doctor about it.
