Actually only 1 herniated, between l4 and l5 discs. No clue how long ago, I don't have a specific painful injurtmimcan recall. It's been many years since I've been having pain, diagnosed about 3 years ago with MRI.
I've had a variety of treatments, including bilateral steroid inkejections, PT, pain meds, etc. Most of the time it's just nagging, but flares up when I deserve it
