A herniated disc is sometimes referred to as a slipped disc or a ruptured disc. It is often the result of an injury or trauma to the spine. The symptoms include:
- Sciatica – a radiating, aching pain, sometimes with tingling and numbness, that starts in the buttock and extends down the back of one leg.
- Pain, numbness or weakness in the lower back and one leg, or in the neck, shoulder, chest or arm.
- Lower back pain that worsens when you sit, cough or sneeze.
