I have a Slipped Disk ;;

Posted April 27th, 2011 at 2:13 AM by Captain Fabio

For those who don't know what it is:

"A spinal disc herniation (prolapsus disci intervertebralis), informally and misleadingly called a "slipped disc", is a medical condition affecting the spine, in which a tear in the outer, fibrous ring (annulus fibrosus) of an intervertebral disc (discus intervertebralis) allows the soft, central portion (nucleus pulposus) to bulge out. Tears are almost always postero-lateral in nature owing to the presence of the posterior longitudinal ligament in the spinal canal. This tear in the disc ring may result in the release of inflammatory chemical mediators which may directly cause severe pain, even in the absence of nerve root compression (see "chemical radiculitis" below). This is the rationale for the use of anti-inflammatory treatments for pain associated with disc herniation, protrusion, bulge, or disc tear.
It is normally a further development of a previously existing disc protrusion, a condition in which the outermost layers of the annulus fibrosus are still intact, but can bulge when the disc is under pressure."

I can tell you now, it is one of the most painful things I have experienced in my entire life.
Have to have phyiso regularly and that is so painful it is untrue.

    Oh my. That sounds most unfortunate. D: My dad has slipped disks as well, and it just does not seem pleasant at all. I hope that you find comfort despite this problematic situation. u.u
