possibly a pinched nerve?

i have numbness and tingling all down my right leg. There is a sharp outward pain from my tail bone. i had an mri and it showed a slightly bulged disc, they are sending me to get an emg next week. could this be a pinched nerve somewhere??

Re: possibly a pinched nerve?

I'm not a doctor, but it sounds like Sciatica - have they mentioned that at all?

Really though, trying to guess and figure out what's wrong with yourself can make you crazy/paranoid. Try and be patient and see what the doctors come up with; in the mean time look after yourself well.

Take care,

Re: possibly a pinched nerve?

Your bulging disc is probably pressing on your sciatic nerve. Do you know what level the problem disc is at? I have sciatic pain as well in both legs and it is not fun! I feel it in my buttocks, groin area, down the legs, and into my feet and toes. I also get numbness in my feet.
Let us know what they say Monday!
