    I have been diagnosed to have a buldged disk at L5-S1. I was wondering what kind of symptoms have you been having? What kind of tests have you undergone or treatments tried?

    I have had two epiderals with cortisone. The first one helped for 2 weeks, but then I felt so good, I started doing everything, including 250 strawberries and the rest of my garden. Got back to a 10+++ pain. Just had another one yesterday and feel great. They told me “no gardening”. I can only have one more. a total of 3 a year. Don’t know what I will do after that.
    Good luck. I would be interested in any other advise.
