These two pictures are showing herniated disc's, I have a milder bulging disc.
The leg pain I have is L5,from the bulge pushing on the Sciatic nerve.
I finally got the results from my MRI. I have a level one disc bulge at L5 pushing against the Sciatic nerve for my left leg. The nerve is severely inflamed right now. I'll be talking to my Physical Therapist today about a new game plan. My doctor thinks PT,weight loss and possible Cortisone shots may take care of it.
