Anyone else with bulging discs have these symptoms?
« on: November 18, 2013, 08:06:54 PM »
I had an MRI in September and it showed 2 bulging discs in my lower back.  On occasion, my lower back will actually hurt.  More times than not, my hip is what's killing me.  I get a horrible pain at my hip and goes down the side of my leg.  I also get bad knee pain as well on the same side.   I'm concerned about the knee pain specifically, because I did have a knee arthroscopy last year and dread the thought of ever needing another one.  So, I'm actually HOPING that the knee pain is back related.  Either way, I had called my orthopedic surgeon's office just to ask a question to the nurse, but was told I needed to schedule an appointment to come in instead, so I'll be going tomorrow.  I hate doing that, in fear that they think I'm crazy.

Hello! Did you ever get the results? I have 3 bulging disc in my lower back. They're all 2mm big, but I have hip pain and rarely any back pain as well.

My wife had bulging discs and similar symptoms - when the discs bulged out they were hitting a nerve which cause horrible pain in her hip and legs

I have two bulging disks too and chronic back pain and bursitis in my right hip. You never know which happy fun nerve the bulge is touching.

Go to the doctor to see what's going on and they will recommend treatment.

I do stretches, Chiropratic adjustments, ride a recumbent bike, and the very best thing is my orthotics. The next thing I have to work on is reducing my stress.
