Right side pain- feels muscular

Nov 30, 2018 10:55 PM

I have facet hypertrophy from L4-S1 and herniated L4/L5 with L4 nerve root compression...
Lately I’ve had pain that feels like muscles need stretching in my Rt side (literally above Rt hip n below ribs n sometimes it feels like my Rt groin). No uti. Doesn’t hurt when pressed.??

Has your doctor mentioned any treatment or surgery for the root compression? I have L4-S2 disc issues, without nerve root compression. I've benefited from epidural steroid injections in the past, but have now developed issues from use of the steroids (unknown & untold to me at the time of treatment). Do your research on any recommendations.

You could try massage therapy & PT. A good therapist will bring you some relief. Warm epsom-salt vaths or showers might be temporary help too. Hugs love & prayers! 🙂❤🙏🌼
