What are the symptoms of having a herniated disk in the lower back?I have numbness and tingling in the lower back when sitting?

Many symptoms...: While this could be a sign of a herniated disc, it sounds a little more like facet arthritis as it does not radiate to different areas and does not have a constant dull ache. That being said, a physical exam and imaging would be necessary to be sure. If you are concerned about an actual herniation, then I would recommend seeing a physician for an exam to be safe. ...Read more

Had symptoms last week of tingling in breast, lower back pain,  2 times noticed metallic taste,  my cycle is 34 days,  6 days early with light bleed?

Missed period?: Those are odd symptoms to be sure but you'll not be able to confirm pregnancy until at least you've missed your period. Once that happens I recommend waiting 1 more week before doing any test just to be sure that you're not just late. Of course, in this case you are having some light bleeding ahead of time as well. Nevertheless, you must wait until you've missed your period. ...Read more

Symptoms of bowelmovements of only mucus and jelly fish like things. leg arm feet numbness and tingling. upper and lower back pain. wbc of 14.8?

This requires eval: Your symptoms and signs (white count of 14,800) are numerous and only an in-person evaluation/examination can adequately assess them. I might think of some form of infectious colitis with your mucus BM's and elevated WBC count; the numbness/tingling and pain could be something entirely different. I believe the best advice is go to ER (or your doc's office if you can get in today!) Good wishes:) ...Read more

Hi. Just today out of nowhere I started getting a tingling numb sensation in my lower back. Is this something I should worry about?

Hi. Just today out of nowhere I started getting a tingling numb sensation in my lower back. Is this something I should worry about?

It depends on....: Symptoms like you have described can come and go on their own. So I would advise you to monitor yourself for few days and do not worry about the potential cause(as we may not find it). Try to relax and take a daily walk, preferably early in the morning. If these symptoms continue and start getting worse over next 1-2 weeks, then you will need a medical check up by your doctor. ...Read more

What causes a tingling pain originating from the lower back through the leg to the ankles?

Sciaticia: There can be many reasons, but my first impression is a problem with the sciatic nerve, a large nerve coming out of the back, getting smaller and smaller until it ends in the feet. A neurosurgeon, orthopedist specializing in spine, or chiropractor may help you with this problem. Your primary physician may be able to recommend someone. Dr. Latva ...Read more

It is possible for a disk in between vertebrae to become injured and press on a nerve as it exits the spine. The sensation of nerve pain is often described as pins and needles or burning pain . I suggest you see your doctor soon for evaluation and treatment. Good luck! ...Read more
