Hello I'm 30 years old female. Last April I got a horrible pain in my back (actually it's not back I felt it like somewhere in my chest). I went to my family doctor and he thought it is a muscle pain and treated for a week but nothing happened. Then I went to a specialist and that doctor asked me to take a MRI on Mobitrack, so then he realized that I have a slipped disc in D-Spain, disc D7-8 but No cord compression. My doctor wants me to go for a surgery, but I'm little bit scared of it. I need an advice. I never had an accident or something like that. The pain occurred suddenly when I was sleeping. Is it a common case slipped disc in D-Spain? How can I get rid of this pain? Please advice View Thread
Thank you for the reply. Actually my doctor also said it is very rare on D-Spain. First I felt it as I'm getting a heart problem. So I went to Cardiologist and they found nothing wrong in heart and transferred me to a Neouro physician.
In my MRI they noted there is a Prolapsed disc in D7-8 in left side.
As the first treatment my doctor sent me for Physiotheraphy and a Orthopaedic surgeon also checked me again.
I felt nothing improved by Physiotheraphy. Then they told me the best option is a surgery.
As far as I know Slipped Disc is common in L region, but no one has heard about D region. So doctors also may experts in doing surgery of lower part. As this is near chest I'm bit scared. Anyway now my condition is getting worse. Now, I'm getting that horrible pain when I'm breathing.
I really don't know the name of the surgery. As doc said it is a samall surgery. I need to know what is it, if anyone familiar with that kind of surgery.
Thank you very muchView Thread
