A herniated disk is an injury to the spine and a cause of lower back pain. Between each of your spinal vertebrae lies a soft, cushion-like disc that acts as a buffer between your bones, allowing you to bend and move with ease. When one of these disks tears, slips, or leaks, it’s called a herniated disk. Depending on its location, a herniated disc can result in pain, numbness, or weakness in an arm or leg.
What are the symptoms of a herniated disc?
Herniated discs often touch or press against nearby nerves, causing sensations along your back or in other areas of your body. Common sensations associated with slipped discs are:
- Back pain
- Numbness or tingling in your limbs
- Sharp or shock-like pain
- Severe pain when standing, sitting, or walking
- Pain in your legs and hips
- Muscle weakness
- Dull or sharp pain in the neck
- Dull or sharp pain between the shoulder blades
- Pain in your arms and shoulders
