Has anyone else had a disc herniation cause "Cauda Equina like" symptoms without actually having compression of the Cauda Equina?
I suspect, after doing a lot of research that my S1 nerve root impinged the piriformis muscle which I in turn affected the pudendal nerves which I believe or lower (S2-S4) but I can't prove it.
sorry for your problems.
You can have your S2-S4 nerves checked by simple bulbocavernosus-reflex-testing. Ask your urologist for the test. If the test fails and your cauda equina is ok, there might be some damage higher up. Google "conus medullaris syndrome". B&b issues are typical for CMS. Sexual problems as well. Legs can be affected. But not necessarily.
