urinary retention began 13 days ago. Since then have had MRI W/o contrast of brain, and no contrast MRI of thoracic and lumbar spine. I do have mild herniation at L5/S1 but nothing compressing on caudical nerve bundle, I have saddle numbness, feet, pelvic and rectal numbness, I have been self cathing. Cerebrospinal fluid has been tested for virus and all negative. Neurologist just re-ordered lumbar MRI with contrast bc my symptoms present so closely to caudica. If it is, I don't need surgery tho. So what are my options? I am a very healthy 50 yo female, up until 2 weeks ago. I do not have back pain, that is the old thing missing as far as symptoms. I'm so scared of long term damage.
