Health Tip: Signs of a Herniated Disc

(HealthDay News) -- The bones that form your spine are cushioned by round discs. A herniated disc is a disc that has been pushed out of place, says the American Association of Neurological Surgeons.

The group mentions warning signs of a herniated disc:

  • Low backache.

  • Numbness or weakness in parts of the body.

  • A sharp, electric shock-like pain on one side of the body.

  • Burning or tingling that radiates into the leg or shoulder.

Sometimes, these symptoms can worsen with standing, walking or sitting.
