I have a torn disc on L4-L5 and it is slowly killing me !
As I understand it the chemical substance that is leaking can aggravate the Arachnioditis?
That is the info I got from my neuro. And he absolutely refuses to operate. In my lucid moments I appreciate that, but there are moments that I want to find another dr. and just tell him to HELP me and get this disc out!

Hi Elizabeth
Sorry to hear about the additional pain. It is true that the leaking disc can make the irritation worse for awhile but it usually resolves. The Doc wrote an article about it and if you can't find it in Search I will look it out tomorrow.
Bye for now

Thanks for that Elizabeth
Sorry Weekends get caught up with domestics.
But at least the Search Engine on the Site works!
Updated a bit tonight
