Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Can you please let me know what is your current problem ?
yes I did
What is the update ?
Thanks for sending the pic
This seems most likely a local muscle bulge. Neuropathic or disc pain usually does not lead to a localized bulge or swelling like this. I agree that you do see the GP first prior to visiting the neurologist .
Feel free to ask if any more question
If done Please leave a POSITIVE (3 – 5 stars, preferably 5) rating by clicking on the stars above, until you do I am not compensated for my time. You can continue to ask follow-up questions even after the POSITIVE rating
As I have mentioned the neuropathy or disc disease does not cause such bulge or swelling. You can get an evaluation first by the GP and if there is any evidence of neuropathy which can be picked on examination then an MRI will be required
The symptoms you mentioned in your last post with neurodoctor mentioning numbness and pain with radiation of pain from back to side and front do suggest a neuropathic pain. But this localized bulge usually is not something which occur with neuropathy. All in all you need an evaluation to find out the exact cause of your symptoms.
Yes because a neuropathic or disc disease does not give rise to such localized swelling
Sorry if you didn,t get a desired reply
No this does not look like an emergency issue and you can wait till Monday . If the pain is mild to moderate you can take anti inflamatorylike Ibuprofen.
