How Do I Know If I Have a Slipped Disc in My Lower Back?
People who have “slipped” a disc in their low back often report a sense of increased pressure in their low back at the time of injury. The associated pain is often described as intense and burning and can potentially take several hours to become bothersome. There can also be numbness or tingling in one or both lower extremities. Increased back pain with coughing, laughing, sneezing, and bowel movements can also be an indication that a person has “slipped” a disc.
