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

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

The: The primary symptoms of multiple sclerosis are caused by inflammation in the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord). This inflammation usually causes damage to the outer, insulating part of nerve fibers called myelin, and can sometimes damage the fiber (or "axon") too. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis overlap with a number of other neurological, medical and psychiatric conditions. Multiple sclerosis can cause a number of symptoms, including vision loss, incoordination, weakness, and numbness, just to name a few. Usually these symptoms do not occur all at once, but affect different functions of different parts of the body at different times. ...Read more

Rule out med illness: You should first get a physicalexam to rule out any medical illness that might be contributing to how you're feeling. There are various illnesses such as vitamin deficiencies thyroid disease and sleep apnea that can cause what you're feeling. Lyme's disease is another possibility. Depression makes you feel very tired and fatigued both physically and mentally. You can develop aches and pains in virtually any part of your body. With depression you feel helpless hopeless worthless and guilty. Energy and motivation are low. There is a distinct lack of ability to enjoy things and a tendency to withdraw socially. You can either have an increased or decreased appetite and insomnia or increased sleepiness. You can also have both. If you are feeling this way please see your doctor, then a therapist, and if necessary a psychiatrist for medication management. Do not forget to watch your diet, exercise, and seek out other ways of treating your depression from an alternative medicine or complementary medicine point of view. Yoga, meditation, acupuncture, and finding your spiritual center can all be important ways to overcome depression. ...Read more

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.
