Re: symptoms of disc problems...
mine was when i couldn't walk, and had to crawl out of my bedroom (literally). i kept describing the "pelvis splitting in 2" feeling, which eventually led to id'ing a lumbar disc tear.
if you feel significantly older (at least 20-30 years) than you are and the pain tends to be localized (although you may also have pain radiating elsewhere, but you can pinpoint a focal point).
hope this helps...
oh, forgot to mention - i had 5 mris that didn't id the problem...i had to have a discogram to find it.
