How do I know if I have a herniated disc?

Most herniated disks occur in the lower back, although common in the neck. Signs/symptoms depend on where the disk is situated & whether the disk is pressing on a nerve. One side of your body is usually affected

Arm or leg pain If your herniated disk is in your neck, you'll typically feel the most pain in your shoulder & arm. If in your lower back, pain is usually in your buttocks, thigh, calf or foot. A cough, sneeze or movement may cause pain to shoot into your arm or leg

Numbness or tingling People who have a herniated disk often have radiating numbness or tingling in the body part served by the affected nerves

Weakness Muscles served by the affected nerves tend to weaken. This can cause you to stumble, or affect your ability to lift or hold items
