As far as most people have bulging disks i don't if this is strictly true they are more common in people with back pain and even though some people with bulging disks have no back pain this doesn't mean they wont develope it in the future as disk disease will usually progress over time if not treated.


Doctors can be very blinkered in there treatment of back pain one thing that is very common in people with back pain is postural problems such as abnormal curvature of the spine bulging and ruptured disks are commonly seen in association with postural problems a sign that you may have postural problems is uneven shoulder height ( are your shoulders level when you look in the mirror?)

You might want to find someone who can evaluate you for this type of problem.
Thank you for your info. My PT told me that with the amount of bulging discs she sees how it could be the culprit of my pain. I was very upset when the neurologist told me "I do not know why you are here." Like there was no help for me.

I am in tears, begging for someone to help me and no doctor seems to know what to do for me. I was trying to decide whether or not to keep my appt with a neuro muscular doctor next Wednesday...from what I've been told he's a lot like a PT just a little better.

I am learning to eat better and put exercise in my plans...but I do not think that loosing my weight will fix my pain. I hurt so bad sometimes I can't walk, and my neck pain often times causes the right side of my cheek to go partially numb.

Thanks for listening and trying to help.
