Ruptured Disc and frequent urination

I have an L4-L5 ruptured disc, today I woke up in horrible pain. The pain medication isn't even working. All day I have had to use the bathroom about every half an hour. It almost seems like I can't completely empty my bladder.

Has anyone had this type of experience? I'm not sure if I need to contact my doctor or not.

Thanks for any advice.

  • Id call the Dr a ruptured disc has nothing to do with your urinary system. That sounds like a UTI or bladder infection to me.
