Back and Spinal Pain
Bulging discs are the most common findings seen on x-rays, CT scans and MRI scans. Symptoms can vary from a dull ache to sharp, severe pain; and can be aggravated by sitting, bending and lifting.
Sciatica is a fancy word for pain and symptoms that spread down to your hips or legs as a result of a lumbar spine (lower back) complaint. Pain can be accompanied by tingling and numbness.
