Non-surgical Treatment Of HNP (pinched Nerve)?
Good evening, I am a 23 year old girl. I have done MRI and the result is I HNP in 4-5 lumbar. Already consulted a neurosurgeon, he told me that my HNP was still grade 1 and my bones were still in good condition so there was no need to take any action. It’s just that I need to exercise, and when the pain recurs I have to take paracetamol. R nBut lately the pain is getting more frequent and unbearable. Especially before menstruation (PMS), the pain is getting worse, especially in the buttocks and groin pain. I went to the obgyn doctor too, he was like I was suffering from endometriosis too, then I was injected with tapros 1x (to prevent menstruation). After injecting tapros, the pain in the groin subsided and had disappeared. But after 3 weeks the pain returned. More frequent pain in the groin r nmy question: r n1. Does the 4-5 lumbar HNP affect the pain in the groin? Or is there another diagnosis of disease? R n2. What causes HNP to recur so frequently? R n3. Is there any effect after doing the hub. body then the pain will recur? r n4. How to treat HNP pain other than taking paracetamol? R n5. Is there any HNP that can be completely lost without operation? R n r nThank you in advance 🙂
We will answer your questions,
1. Based on your history of medical examination and treatment, it seems that the source of pain is predominantly from reproductive disorders, namely endometriosis. It is true that HNP can also be a source of pain, but because it is still grade 1, the chances are quite low. Other causes that can cause groin pain include:
Meralgia presthetica, occurs due to pressure on the nerves in the thigh area DVT or deep vein thrombosis Diabetic neuropathy, is a complication of diabetes that is long and uncontrolled Greater trochanteric pain syndrome, pain in the outside of the groin. Muscle disorders 2. HNP is a condition in which the discs between vertebrae / spine move out of position. HNP will generally cause pain, weakness or tingling in certain areas. The appearance of pain can be caused by certain activities, such as heavy lifting, certain sports, hard coughs and others. You can observe whenever the pain appears and you feel.
3. HNP pain can appear after sexual activity, especially if you are active and involve the use of back and pelvic muscles. In endometriosis, pain is not related to your sexual activity.
4. Handling of mild HNP is done by: physiotherapy, certain sports, chiropractic or acupuncture. Surgery will only be recommended for prolonged and severe symptoms.
5. Mild HNP can be lost even without surgery. Especially if you also do additional therapy as above.
Please consult again, either with your neurologist or your gynecologist. I hope this helps
