Back problem

10 years ago I experienced a numb sensation in my right leg and I was diagnosed with a prolapsed disc. What is a prolapsed disc and can it be cured?

Re: Back problem

A prolapsed disc often causes severe lower back pain. The disc often presses on a nerve root which also causes pain and other symptoms in a leg. In most cases, the symptoms ease off gradually over several weeks
Has the pain gone now?
