ok, I AM LOOKING FOR SOME ADVICE, I HAVE HAD THREE SURGERIES AS STATED BELOW, NOW I AM HAVING TROUBLE WITH MY L-4 DISC, IT IS BULGING AND MY LEFT LEG IS PAINFUL FROM THE BUTT DOWN TO MY TOES, WHICH THEY ARE NUMB ALMOST ALL THE TIME, THE BACK ISNT REALLY SORE, WELL TO TOUCH IT IS, BUT WITH MY OTHER SURGERIES I AM NOT BED RIDDEN, BUT STILL HAVING PAIN, NOW WITHIN THE LAST TWO OR MORE MONTHS MY MIDDLE TO UPPER BACK HAS ACHED LIKE YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE, I HAVE DDD, LIKE MY FATHER AND OTHER MEMBERS OF OUR FAMILY, AND I WONDER IF THAT IS THE CAUSE, MORNINGS ARE ***l AND I HAVE TO TAKE A PAIN PILL AND MUSCLE RELAXER AND WAIT FOR OVER AN HOUR FOR THE PAIN TO SUBSIDE. NOW THE BULGE, I AM WONDERING IF THIS IS SOMETHING TO WORRY ABOUT, THE NP TOLD ME HE WOULD DO ANOTHER MRI IF I REQUESTED IT, BUT OBVIOUSLY IT IS PUTTING PRESSURE ON MY SPINAL CORD SOMEWHERE, I CAN SEE IT SORT OF, I AM NOT A DOCTOR. BUT MY LAST HERNIATION WENT CLEAR ACROSS MY SPINAL CANAL AND I WAS IN MEDIAL PAIN, WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? I HAVE TO BACK AND SEE THE DOC IN ABOUT TWO WEEKS, I STILL NEED PAIN MEDS, TAKE THEM ABOUT 2-5 TIMES A WEEK. WHAT DO I TELL HIM? FAVREX
