Hi, I had slip disc back in year 2011, but recovered my scatica issue. I had an visited a geriatrics doctor and in rehab counter engaging physio therapy. At that time I was 45 years old.

The worst case was in 2018 Oct where I was hospitalised 3 days at the hospital where I first started my rehad. I could not straighten my body. My left leg was the issue where pain from my lower back to my left buttock to the left leg all the way to the bottom with scatica. Was diagnosed slip disc  L3/L4, L4/5,L5/S1 and ddd.  Took alots of pain killer like lyrica, arcoxia along with Omeprazole, along with vitamin B complex combined with other vits. 
Took me at 10 months to recovered through physio. 

3rd episodes was 2019 Oct. One toc 3 months after recovery. I started to felt my back left are having the same feeling which I always do have when pain occure like spasm on the and body started to slunt as observe by my wife. This time I went look for pain specialist. Instead of the local hospital I went twice. This was more of a annular fissures left side. L3/L4, L4/5,L5/S1 and DDD.

I had minor surgery using endoscopic. To abract the annular like jelly type out. Done physio.

Went back for mri 29 May 2021. Found fully recovered with no more scatica commented. The specialist did commented that my right had minor but did not say anything like serious. It's was known during my earlier mri. 

The problem is that my right side still have minor foot pain and some times back and of the hip. 

Other then back pain, was also have bad gastritis soon after my second visit of my back on the 29 May 2021.

So very tricky some time. Not sure if my back pain right leg got to do with the stomach wind or not. 

Thank you.

    Welcome to the community @Marvinc66 :) Thanks for sharing your journey so far with us. It sounds as though you've been through a lot, so I'm sorry you're still experiencing some pain in your back, foot, and hip. 

    It'd be difficult for us to say what might be causing this pain. Have you mentioned it to your doctor, or asked whether it could be caused by the gastritis? 

    Just to let you know, I've moved your post into our chronic pain and pain management category, and renamed it, so that others with a similar experience can hopefully find your post more easily.
