Your spine is a column made up of several pieces of bone that are attached to each other, and the intervertebral discs act as shock absorbers between these bones. Sometimes these discs may become swollen or protrude. The symptoms of this condition depend on the position of the damaged disc in the spine. L4-L5 disc protrusion, which causes pressure on the L5 nerve, is one of the most common situations in which a herniated disc complication occurs. The bulge of this disc, which is located in your lower back, causes a series of uncomfortable symptoms.
The lumbar spine (lower back) is a very complex structure. Some symptoms of a herniated disc, such as those seen in the L4-L5 disc, can indicate severe and dangerous compression of a nerve. Therefore, if you see such symptoms in yourself, see a doctor immediately, because if this condition is not treated in time, it can be irreversible. In addition, a herniated disc can lead to long-term problems or paralysis of your lower limbs.
What are the most common symptoms of lumbar disc?
1- The most common symptom of lumbar disc rupture is back pain.
2- The second most common symptom is sciatica pain, which is a pain that shoots from the hip to the back of the thigh and then to the back of the leg. Usually back pain occurs first and after some time sciatica pain is added to it.
4- In some people who suffer from disc rupture, only back pain is seen.
5- In some people with a ruptured disc, only pain is seen in the sciatica path. Such people do not have back pain at all. They refer only with lower limb pain or sciatica pain.
6- In people who suffer from sciatica, pain may be seen in only one limb. That is, they only have right or left sciatica pain, and in some cases, bilateral sciatica pain is seen, that is, both lower limbs are affected, right and left. to hurt
