I have been dealing with herniated disc symptoms for the better part of my adult life. It has not been easy. Dealing with the pain and discomfort that comes with a herniated disc has forced me to change drastically the way I live my life. Things I could do when I was young like lift heavy things, or bend and touch my toes, are impossible for me to do now. If I could go back in time I would take steps to protect my back. I would have stretched more. If and when I had to lift heavy objects I would use a back brace or something to help me better carry the weight and not have it affect my back so much. Now all I can do is take steps to manage the pain, and try to maintain some level of flexibility. Your back is such an important thing care for it and it will carry you.
