Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... My question is I gave had a total of four vack surgeries I am still experiencing a lot of leg pain and vack pain. I had a MRI done about a month ago and I do have 2 bluging discs but my dr can not see what could be causing my keg pain . Could there be something else that could be causing it?
Hi Thank you for asking HCM I have gone through your query. Your problem of back pain can be due to nerve compression syndrome caused by bulging disc. This can give a neuritis or neuropathic pain. In such case i treat my patients with muscle relaxants like tizanidine , NSADs like aceclofenac and neurotropic drugs like pregabalin & methylcobalamin. I also recommend physiotherapy and muscle strengthening exercises along with this. Wearing Lumbar supporting belts also will be helpful also. Surgery is indicated for moderate to severe nerve compressions and pain not relieving by conservative methods. A consultation with an orthopedic surgeon or neurologist is well appreciated for this. Nerve conduction studies also carried out in some case. Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear. Thanks.
