Patient :Hi doctor. I am a female and I have Sciatica. I did the MRI last year and the doctor told me that something was wrong between L4 and L5 on my spine. I think I kind of know the cause of that. I think it is caused by masturbation. Every time after masturbating, I feel pain in my back and right leg. The more frequent I do that, the more pain I feel. I believe that masturbation is a completely normal thing as it fulfils humans' sexual drive. However, the pain is really keeping me away from doing that. I was wondering if I should quit this habit as it causes Sciatica. Or is there any way that I can relieve my pain? I am doing Thai boxing and does it help strengthen my back muscles? Or does it make things worse? Thank you so much!
