neck & back pain

I have burning in my right lower back and in my right shin. Some numbness in my toes and pain into my ankle. I went to the doctor and he said my herniation is on the left side? I also have an annular tear . Why am I in so much pain? The same thing happened to my neck , herniation on the left pain down my right side. I also have an annular tear in the neck. Strange but it seems I'm wired backwards?????

Re: neck & back pain

I dont think that the pain you feel has to be on the same side as the herniation some times when a disc herniates all the jelly in the center of the disc will ooze out into the spinal canal its possible that it will come in to contact with the spinal cord on the opposite side of the herniation
