Regular Backache Pain? It Could Be Lumbar Slipped Disc​

How do you differentiate whether it’s a slipped disc (herniated disc) or just regular backache?
 
Herniated disc in the lumbar spine can cause:
➡️Back pain
➡️Sharp shooting pain travel from back to buttock, thigh, calf and toes
➡️Numbness or tingling in the leg and toes
➡️Pain intensified by coughing
➡️Lower body muscle weakness
➡️Muscle spasms or cramps
 
Yes, you see it right. Herniated disc in the lumbar spine will cause pain and numbness in the limbs. In fact, leg pain could be more severe than back pain.
If you are experiencing these symptoms consistently for 2 weeks or longer, it’s time to discuss with a doctor.
 
Beware of the symptoms, care for your spine.
