Your Disc Injury Symptoms
If you have ever suffered intense pain in your neck or back, it is possible you may have an underlying disc injury condition. It is estimated that up to 90% of the general asymptomatic population has disc damage visible on MRI studies. Disc pain is typically sharp pain that will travel into your arm or leg, and make sitting, moving, and sleeping all very difficult.
Types of Disc Injuries
Some common types of disc injuries include bulging, herniated, degenerative, and ruptured discs. Inside of your disc is a gel like material that circulates nutrients in and out of the spine. The circulating effect of the disc is dependent upon normal movement of your spine. If normal movement of your spine is compromised for any reason, your discs over time can become unhealthy and painful.
Disc injury symptoms can include:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Weakness in the arm, hand, leg, or foot
- Numbness of the arms, hands, legs, or feet
- Sciatica Pain in the arms or legs
- Increased pain with coughing, sneezing, laughing, or straining on the toilet
- increased low back pain or leg pain with sitting
