Re: Difference of opinion on bulging disks, etc?

Hi! You are absolutely right! The only area on the spine that affects the legs is the L5!!! I have several issues with this as well and most of my problems are due to bulging discs on C5/6/7. This causes all the vertebrae on that side with the bulging disks to have problems and pinched nerves even including my L5! I even was limping and had shooting pain and numbness. Thanks to my chiropractor and receiving adjustments I am back to normal! I fought for years with a neurologist, rheumatologist and Md.s...they never understood what was going on with me and only prescribed pain pills and muscle relaxers. This only intensified the problem because I was left UNTREATED! Listen to your chiropractor and L5 bulging disk is an unfortunate place for this problem...I'm sorry.
