Must be going around. Just got back from Pain Mgmnt Dr. Went to PCP 3 months ago who sent me to him. I have a bulging disc according to MRI.
Shot in the L4 region didn't do anything.
PT has helped a lot. Of course prior to this, I was doing pilates and core strengthening for the same problem. Mine ain't too bad. 1 alleve every couple days. I have muscle relaxers and tramodol for pain if needed.
Sitting is a pain sometimes
Do those stretches!
