    Dude, I don't think anything here will help you ... go see a dr. there are all kinds of medical options available to you; prednisone, cortisone shots, even surguries now are becomong "outpatient" style and bring major reliefs to disc issues. Good luck man...

    I herniated my L4-L5 and L5-S1 disks. They flare up sometimes, but I got over it w/o surgery.
