Re: 5 herniated discs in my t spine :(

It is unusual to have more than one herniated thoracic disc...you are right about that. Are you seeing a spine specialist? It will be very important that your case is managed by either an orthopedic spine surgeon or s neurosurgeon. I would explore things like ankylosing spondilitis or something similar with the doctor to see if there is some underlying reason for that much disc damage at your age.

There is nothing to be alarmed about, but it is unusual for anyone to have that many herniated discs, particularly at a relatively young age.

At least you have found the source of your pain and know it isn't all in your head. Now it will be important to find the right doctor who knows what to do with your issues.
