I believe I herniated my disk. It’s very similar to the symptoms I’ve had a few times in the last few year. Massive acute pain at the base of my spine. However, the pain does not run down my legs. 10 years ago, from an MRI showed a bulging disc so it’s probably the culprit. Pain exists when I do flexion (bent over at 45 degree angle) and I’m walking gingerly.
I can’t lay in bed since the pain is so great when I try to get up so I’m sleeping in a recliner at night. It’s excruiating pain when I try to get up. Unreal.
I’m doing PT and getting ART from a local chiropractor. It happened a few days ago but wonder how long it will take to heal. It’s happened in the past but not to this level. When can I start lifting again? Was going to just use machines but even then I’m apprehensive.
