if you have pain and or numbenss in your leg(s) or arm(s) depending on where the herniation is, Cymbalta can help.  Drs give this to diabetic patients with numbess problems.  I have herniated L4-L5 L5-S1 and Cymbalta has really helped with the leg pain.  As for the herniated disc itself there are lots of treatments besides surgery.  I have had epideral steroid injections (made me swell up like a blowfish for acouple months but helped), they attempted a nerve block-did not work for me.  I recently had some sort of electrical probe directed at the herniated discs and that has worked the best.  I was able to bend over and tie my own shoes again.  Since then I do strenght training 4-5 days a week to keep things on an even keel and so far so good!  Good luck.  If I remember the name of the electrical treatment I will let you know.
