Local spine pain, possibly disc, doesn't fit any description I can find

Hi, I'm 25, Male, no history of back pain. Recently I've had a sore spot on my spine, in height with the lungs. It came gradually, not as a result of an injury or any event that I can recall. When I sit or lie down normally I don't feel anything, but when I bend forwards I feel the pain. I can't say the pain is particularly bad or debilitating, but it worries me nonetheless. Another strange thing is that the point where it hurts (if I press it, it hurts in the same way) occurs between two "bones", and that space is larger than elsewhere. Basically, if I go down my sp

Local spine pain, possibly disc, doesn't fit any description I can find

Hi there! Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include postural issues, joint inflammation/ degeneration, neuro-muscular causes such as muscle sprain, nerve impingement, injuries to muscles/ ligaments, inflammations, spinal causes such as degeneration, micronutrient deficiencies, referred pain from other regions etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought. Meanwhile you could take some tylenol/ OTC NSAIDS and see of these seem to help. Hope this is helpful. Take care!

Straightening of the Cervical Lordosis?

this sounds like a postural problem to me.. are you hunched over the computer alot? also, i dont see how anyone can tell you that you have budging discs BEFORE an MRI was taken. That makes no sense at all. and then on top of that there is no mention of this problem on the MRI report.......hmmmmnn. neck and upper back pain with such a benign report tells me you've got muscle spasm/muscle imbalance issues in and around your neck.

mri lumbar spine result

YOUR MRI Seems pretty benign to me. BAck pain most of the time is not from things that are found on an MRI, especially if you've had this pain for so long without numbness,weakness and radiation to the toes. more than likely, your pain is muscular/postural in nature. are you overweight? how is your posture? are you on the computer alot? do you have a strong core?? I'd go that route in a serious manner before even thinking about surgery. the worst mistake anyone )patient or doctor is to proceed with an operation on pain. When there is no obvious, traceable reason for pain on an MRI, the solution is usually in the patient's hands, not in a procedure or a doctor.

L5-S1 right-sided disc protrusion

I would go see a spinal orthopedist. They will ptobably tell you to get a MRI. This painless test will tell them if you have a disc (nerve) problem. Usually physical therapy can help especially if it is not costant. Good luck.

C5-C6 pain, can't find relief

Hi Becky We seem to share the same problem. I have had a constant headache which morphes into migraines for 18 months. You can read my post (jasper12) below yours. My c5/c6 disc is degenerate and my surgeon wants to replace the disc. I also have a loss of lordosis in my neck. I'm worried that the pain might not be coming from there and about the prospect of undergoing unnecessary surgery. As I'm into my 4th day of a migraine, I'm feeling desperate. I'm booked for nerve blocks next week and will let you know how they go. I'm not on any painkillers either as I react badly to all of them (they throw a rebound migraine at me) but take Ambien to sleep through the pain a couple of days a week. My pain swaps sides too which is confusing me. Can we keep in touch. We migh be able to help each other out. Cheers Sue

serious back pain and adrenalin

It could be from adrenalin but is more than likely that all the walking you are doing is causing inflammation. Try taking an anti-inflammatory before the start of the club event and then another dose that night before you go to bed to see if that helps. I take Black cherry extract capsules 750mg NOW brand 2 per day more on days when I am more active and they work better than the prescription meds the doctors gave me. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck to you. Sissie

Neck Pain & Low Back Pain. Right-sided Pain. Evaluate for disc Herniation

Hi Ray I recently got into an auto accident and my cervical & lumbar is sprained. I cant go into detail at the moment. my MRI shows that my cervical is pushed to the right while lumbar shifted to the left. I also have pinched nerves and I am still under going many tests. I know this is a aggravating & frustrating thing to have and my doctor also suggested surgery. I myself and from others have heard nothing good about the surgeries. even people that have had it 5-10-15yrs ago...they say they are in more pain today. what i am doing is going through physical therapy and studying non-surgical exercises & therapy. elevating your legs while sleeping helps a lot also. there is also an ancient method I have yet to try....they say its somewhat of a miracle move. but I heard if u slept on a floor for 6months EVERYDAY on your back....it would readjust its self. as I said, I have yet to try it but am researching this at the moment....get better soon!

I need help understanding my MRI reports

It sounds to me like you have a bulging disc (kind of like squeezing a balloon between your fists, it pushes out ward as you increase pressure) at multiple levels of your spine which is putting pressure on the sac that carries a bunch of nerves.  This in turn puts pressure on the nerves which causes a lot of discomfort.   I've had similar stuff and have had good success with decompression therapy along with regular stretching and exercise.  Have you seen your dr regarding the mri report?  Good luck!!!
