    Ok I know that back pain is often not due to herniation.

    I know many people have disc herniations with no symptoms.

    Following is my question:

    For people with TMS who have back pain and herniations (but the back pain isn't caused by these), is the back pain where it would be if it were because of the herniation?

    In other words, if you have an L3 herniation, will you have back pain not caused from the herniation at L3 too?

    If the pain has begun today immediately after a severe traumatism, grave fall, serious accident, .... its reason is physical,
    BUT if the pain has appeared "from nothing" or from something banal or ordinary you´ll find in the MRI the SAME yesterday herniated disc !

    According to the American College of Physicians, spinal abnormalities, such as dis herniation, is normal and not responsible for back pain. I explain more in these two videos on pain facts doctors do not tell their patients.


    So go with consider L3 herniation normal.
