In brief: See below
A disc herniation in the neck will frequently cause pain running into one of the arms sometimes down to the fingers.
Not all disc herniations cause pain. A herniation in the lower back will not cause neck or arm pain. Many people who have disc problems in the lower back also have problems in the neck.
