You may have been told, or assume, that you have a herniated disc of some sort in your neck or lower back. But, to be sure, let’s talk about what a herniated disc is. A herniated disc, also known as a slipped disc, is a problem with one of the rubber-like cushions (discs) in between your spinal bones. When part of the jellylike center of your spinal disc pushes through its tough rubbery exterior, it causes a tear. As a result, you may feel pain, weakness, or numbness in your arms or legs. However, there are times when you may not experience any symptoms at all.
On the other hand, a bulging disc is when the jelly center breaks through the outer shell but the outer layers stay intact. So the primary difference is that one tear and the other, simply put, is out of place. Though both can compress your nerve root. Either way, you will most likely experience painful side effects. This is why it is important to be seen by a doctor when your symptoms first begin.
