Re: Problem with lower lombar disk pinching a nerve
patti is right,you DO need an updated MRI,or a first one if you have never actually had one.if you go up to the 'backboards' here,there are MANY people who can help you with questions.they all have been thru some level of back surgery or are having problems/symptoms,similar to yours.the longer any nerve stays 'pinched' or compressed,the higher the risk of permanent damage and pain to it.if this is indeed a compromised nerve,it needs releasing,soon.marcia
