Protrusion para central L5 impinging nerve root

Started by 102082362451360... on 05/30/2016 10:47am

Hi all! New to forum. Any advice would be appreciated. Have terrible pain going down left buttock, leg, calf and foot. This started three months ago. Have herniated disc impinging nerve root. I was a pretty active teacher, and in the past few weeks feel like a waste of space. Pain management doc started me on neurontin and I did get an epidural shot, which helped a bit. My question is, do discs on nerve root ever heal on own or is surgery always required? I'm very depressed about this mess. Thank you for any replies. Beth
