Pain in lower back, tingling in legs, arms and chest. MRI shows bulging disc on L5S. Treatment?

My lower back hurts. 2 years ago, I had an MRI which shows a bulging disc on L5S. I have tingling in both feet and legs and in my hands and arms. I ve also had this tingling sensation in my chest which scares me. Is this chest issue related to my back? My chest doesn t hurt, just feels like the tingling in legs, arms.

Hi jrobert3156

herniation of L5S1 disk explains the tingling in billateral lower limbs. you may have got some spinal problem in your cervical spine like cervical spondylitis which is causing symptoms in upper limbs.

you may cosult orthopedician/ spinal surgeon for the the meantime you may try tablet pregabalin 75 mg once daily to get relief and consult physitherapist to get advice of back extension exercises and neck exercises. you may also try soft cervical collar.

best wishes
