Effects and Diagnosis of Herniated Disc

Effects and Diagnosis of Herniated Disc

A Herniated disc also known as a slip disc or prolapsed disc and it refers to the problem where one of the discs located in between the bones of the vertebrae(backbone) gets damaged and stacks itself upon the nerves. The tender inner portion of the disc gets protruded over the outer ring. Herniated disc causes severe neck pain and back pain. It occurs when the outer ring gets weak and tears down. The most common symptoms include pain and numbness, especially on one side of the body. The pain extends down to the arms and legs. It worsens during nighttime. The muscles become weak. Overweight people are likely to have this disease, as the discs carry extra weight. Old people are vulnerable to a slip disc.

Effects of Herniated Disc:

  1. An untreated case of Herniated disc may cause permanent damage to the nerves.
  2. In certain cases, a Herniated disc is capable of cutting off nerve impulses to the "caudal equine"nerves, present in the lower back and legs. This leads to loss of bladder control or bowel control.
  3. Saddle anaesthesia is another long-term effect. Nerves are compressed by the slip disc, causing loss of sensation in the inner portions of your thighs, the back of your legs and surrounding the rectum region.
  4. Symptoms may improve or worsen.

Diagnosis of Herniated Disc:
Treatment or diagnosis of Herniated disc or slipped disc can be either conservative or surgical in nature. The nature of treatment is determined according to your discomfort level and the kind of pain you are experiencing, or how much the disc has slipped out.

  1. The pain caused by Herniated disc can be relieved by undertaking an exercise schedule, which includes stretching and strengthening the spine and its surrounding muscles.
  2. A physiotherapist should be appointed for recommending the types of exercises.
  3. Taking pain relievers also soothes the pain.
  4. Stronger medicines prescribed by doctors include-muscle relaxants, narcotics to deal with the pain, medicines for nerve pain such as "gabapentin"  or "duloxetine".
  5. In case of the symptoms not subsiding within a span of six weeks, a surgery may be recommended by your doctor. The surgeon may have to remove the damaged part of the disc. This surgery is called a microdiscectomy.

Hello doctor I am having back pain since last two years. I can't sit properly due to its pain. What can I do.
First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket . And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back . you may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * Gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * Surya Namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * In diet vegetable protein of cereal , B complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

Hello. You did not mentioned the age of the patient. As the age progresses there will be changes in the bone density. If there is work related any strenous effort to the bones, they may get easily degenerated. Without any rheumatological reports or proper investigations, medicine can not be advised. Also along with medications internally & treatments externally with some knee joint exercises can increase the stability of the joint.

Hello lybrate user, arthritis is a degenerative condition which progresses with aging. It goes through different stages like mild, moderate and severe arthritis. You might be suffering from arthritis at the age of 49 because of some pre-disposing condition but it usually presents in patients greater than 55 to 60 years. You have mentioned that you have bearable pain while walking. You might be in the early stages of arthritis. This can be managed by lifestyle modifications like light exercises, weight reduction, physiotherapy for the muscles of knee to maintain the mobility and strengthen the muscles. This might decrease your pain as well. If you have persistent pain, it might respond to painkillers. Surgery is advisable to only those who have unbearable pain and who are unable to do their daily routine activities because of the advanced arthritis. The other disadvantage of surgery at an early age is the limited life span of the prosthetic knee joint. Even in ideal cases has a life span of 15 to 20 years, after which you might need to undergo revision surgeries which are complex and are associated with a high rate of complications. So considering an average of 12 years of implant survival, by the age of 70 to 75 you might need a second revision surgery. Therefore, it is best to delay surgery as much as possible unless you have complications like decreasing movement at the knee joint or development of a severe deformity because of a severe grade of arthritis or unbearable pain not responding even to the highest doses of medications. Hope this helps.

Do hot fomentation twice daily. Postural correction- always sit with a small pillow at your low back. Sit tall, walk tall. Extension exercises like bridging and bhujang asana x twice daily. Sleep on your back with a pillow under your knees or on your sides with a pillow between your knees. And get vit d levels checked. Go for regular walks follow 30-30 rule when at work. After every 30 min of work. Do 30 sec of stretching or stand and walk a bit.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It seems that there is some nerve compression at lower back region. I can advise you exactly if I have certain information from you: - 1) a detailed neurological (motor, sensory, deep tendon reflexes) charting done by a trained physical therapist - maybe neurosurgeon's prescription paper can be of advantage and he must have noted down your examination findings. 2) your mri images and reports in an attachment do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hi, Ms. lybrate-user, I am not sure who made a diagnosis of RA in you. RA levels are very borderline in your case and they are not high enough to make a diagnosis of RA. But having said that many Ra patients have negative tests too. You have psoriasis. The arthritis associated with psoriasis is called psoriatic arthritis. It usually is diagnosed clinically, by history and patient examination and test alone is not sufficient. Also, understand that psoriasis of the skin is itself an autoimmune condition. It doesn't require any test, we can diagnose it by just looking at the skin. Rheumatology deals with autoimmune disorders. Unfortunately, most autoimmune disorders are complex, there is not a single blood test. Many immune blood results (like RA test) can be positive in normal patients. A diagnosis can only be made with proper, history and examination along with relevant blood results. I get many patients in my OPD with positive blood results of autoimmunity, but they don't have the disease. So I hope you understood why a specialist should see you before you do or interpret any results. Since rheumatology deals with autoimmune disorders mostly, Rheumatologist and clinical immunologists are one and same in India. We mostly use the word rheumatologists rather than immunologists in India. If you have trouble finding rheumatologist in your area do let me know Regards Best wishes.
