I have a herniated disc in my lower back and pain radiates around to both hips since Dec 2016. I had a lumbar epidural injection in June with short lived relief. Last Wednesday I began experiencing sharp, violent pain on the left side, screaming out (involuntarily) when certain movement causes that severe sharp pain. It feels like it s clutching what I consider my entire hip area, through my back and carrying through the front and back of my hip. Using muscle relaxers and Duexis, it only takes a minimal edge off the pain. I d like some input since I can t see my pain management doctor until next Wednesday. Thank you.

Chiropractor believed its not a disc or sciatica. Pain cannot be managed. could it be a tear in muscle? Chiro is waiting for further results and I will see her tomorrow at 9:00am. Help?

I have suffered with a back pain (L5) for 2 years after and prolapsed disc and had recovered but got worse recently and experienced lower back pain and pain in both legs. After 10 days this escalated into numbness from the waist down and admitted to hospital and diagnosed with Caudia Equina Syndrome and had surgery to remove the compression within about 24 hours. It is now over 3 weeks since the operation and still have little feeling in the right foot, have lost a large percentage of muscle tome in my calves and backs of legs and buttocks and still have no feeling artound my saddle area. It is also very difficult to predict when I need to empty my bowels. Whatg are the chances of a full rcovery in this instance
