Hi DR Mark, I would like to thank you for all the great advice you give on this site your info is priceless. My question for you is, I have 3 bulging Disk 3-4,4-5 and 5-S1 and one of them has a tear, they said a central annular tear how ever they did not grade it. I had sciatica for the last month my right leg is numb but seems to be getting better. Will my leg ever be normal? Do bulging disk go back to normal? How much time should I take before attemping to race again? Thanx for your help Doc.
