Re: ruptured disc
Yes, you may want to look up information on each level of the cervical spine and what it can affect.
For example, someone who becomes a paraplegic due to spinal cord injury in the cervical region may have bladder/bowel issues. For those who don't have a severe traumatic injury the symptoms can be based on where on the nerve the impingement is, etc. Get this checked out as soon as possible.
