Symptoms of a Herniated Disc

Are Symptoms Noticeable?

After a Florida car crash, a victim may come into the doctor’s office with undefined pains. They know something is wrong in their legs and feet and describe it as muscle weakness or a feeling of tingling and numbness. When a doctor tells the patient that these are classic symptoms of a herniated disc, the victim may not believe it. Many people assume a herniated disc is accompanied by intolerable pain.

Sometimes a Herniated Disc Has No Pain

Depending upon the types of soft tissue involved and the location of the herniation, symptoms of herniated discs can vary from no pain to serious, insistent pain.

Some common signs and symptoms of herniated discs include:

  • Neck pain shooting down your arms
  • Low back pain sending shocks down your legs
  • Continuous radiating pain
  • Sensory changes
  • Paresthesia or tingling of the skin
  • Sciatica
  • Reflex changes
  • Muscle weakness
  • Paralysis

When a herniated disc isn’t pressing on nerves or soft tissue, it is possible to not have any symptoms or pain. However, when the herniation is severe, permanent nerve damage or paralysis can occur, which can result in a loss of bladder and bowel control and sexual dysfunction.

What If Your Injury Was Caused By Someone Else?

Because most herniated discs cause a lifetime of nerve problems and pain, victims of South Florida auto accidents should be compensated for their damages. If you were injured in a Florida crash due to someone else’s negligence, please call Chalik & Chalik to schedule your free legal consultation with an experienced car accident attorney today.
