How are the symptoms of a herniated disc different from those of a sequestrated/ruptured disc? Can herniated discs 'pop'?

Symptoms and terms. Many consider a ruptured disc and a herniated the same thing and use the terms interchangeably. A sequestered disc is a very large disc herniation. Where the disc itself is out of the disc space and behind the vertebral body above or below that level. symptoms tend to be worse with large herniations but not always. Symptoms include leg pain with numbness and tingling.
