Pinched nerves can occur just about anywhere in the body. But when they're in your back, they are most frequently referred to as a herniated disc. Symptoms of a herniated disc include pain that starts in the spine and radiates down one or both legs, numbness or decreased sensation in the area that is affected, tingling sensations or muscle weakness in the affected area. Pain may become worse during or immediately after periods of sleeping or lying down.
If these sound like symptoms that you have felt before, don't panic. Most herniated discs heal on their own without invasive medical intervention in one to six months. But if those treatments fail, roughly 10 percent of people who suffer from this type of back injury will need to have surgery. As always, it is important to find an experienced spine expert to help you navigate through the pain, beginning with the most conservative treatment options first.
