Sauerkraut: Belle- that sounds like it's inflamed, sorry to hear about that, there are treatments that can help if that is what it is.

GrumpyOM: Belle, sounds a lot like you're having muscle spasms also, due to the pain. Relaxing them will help some. Your muscles tend to tighten up pulling even more on the nerve. Been there, done that. Complete disk removal in 1979.

GrumpyOM: I was on Valium for spasms and Tylenol/Codeine for the pain. Have a whole cabinet full of pain killers of various sorts that I was given over the years. Don't like to take them so usually just kept the majority of the prescription after taking it a day/2
