I have posted on here before but have a large herniation at L4. I haven`t been to any surgeon and do not want surgery. I am 60 and have other problems. I am also slim and was extremely active until 3 mths ago. I refuse to take painkillers as they do not work and not keen on other medication. Having being seein a Physio I now stretch for an hr a day walk 2 miles every morning use ice and a tens machine, I can sleep as use a body pillow but I can`t drive and the pain restricts what I can do would spinal injections help. I have pain in my back, in my hip, shin big toe and 3 other toes are numb. I also get pain in the opposite side and numb toes, have been told that is ok. I read people have much bigger problems than me but to me these are big problems.
