L5 S1 bulged disc 10 years ago

Started by Mikenvegas on 07/11/2017 3:17pm

Still have numbness in right foot and club foot feeling. I wonder if this will ever go away. I continually trip over things and find it hard to feel accelerator pedal when driving vehicles. Anyone else out there have this problem?

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Hi, Mikenvegas--thanks for your post. We're so sorry to read about the neurological pain you're experiencing.

Have you met with a doctor about this? You mention having a lumbar disc issue from years back, but your doctor may want to order imaging scans to get a definite understanding of what's going on. Given the numbness you're experiencing, a neurosurgeon may be the best type of physician to see. If you don't have one already, our doctor finder tool is a great resource to connect you to a qualified spine specialist near you: https://www.spineuniverse.com/locate/spe...

We hope you get to the bottom of what's going on and find some relief soon. We wish you the very best of luck!
