I Recently had an MRI which revealed I had a herniated disc (L5-S1). I can either get injections or go for surgery. Both will most likely cost me a lot of out of pocket $ since my insurance sucks badly (really high deductible). Before I go and spend the $ though, is there any possibility that this herniation will heal on it's own? The pain (sciatica in right leg) has lessened over the past few months, but I feel like I've hit a wall in terms of improvement. I'm at a point where I can do most functions normally, but there's always that pain if I stretch to far, sit too long, stand up for too long, etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Edit: fixed "it's" typo in the title haha Edit 2: How much do steroid injections cost typically? What about surgery to fix a herniated disc?
