Hi, Thank you for your question. Your reports suggest that you have disc prolapse at cervical and lumbar region. In slipped disc or disc prolapse conditions symptoms may originate due to nerve root pressure, pressure on the spinal cord and pressure on the tail bone. Common symptoms could be paralysis of muscles, head pain, pain radiating to the arms or legs, leg pain and numbness, tingling, or weakness. Warning symptoms can include loss of control of the bladder function, numbness/pain at genital areas, paralysis & spasticity of both the legs. In addition, if you are suffering continuous weakness and notice reduced strength of muscle bulk in leg, please arrange an appointment with a neurologist right away. Further referral to a physiotherapist for spinal exercises could be beneficial and may produce relief of symptoms. Hope this helps. Take Care & Stay Healthy!!!

Hi, Thank you for your question. I would suggest that you wait for your MRI report since it will be an important investigation to precisely reach at any diagnosis. If you feel aggravation of symptoms then you immediately consult your doctor. Hope this helps.

I have 9/10 back pain in Aug 2009 then same pain in Dec 2009. Now I have 6/10 back pain. Some time I don't have any pain. Some time I have feeling head lice or aunt crawling in my head. I am going for Physiotherapist on Wednesday. My family doctor said that I am not ready for the operation. Do I have to see a neurologist ? Please advice me. My neurologist examine me before the MRI RESULT came.  


I am waiting for your reply
