When you’re suffering from the pain associated with a bulging or herniated disc, you may be confused about the proper name for the condition. A lot of people are. That’s because this condition is referred to by a wide array of terms. These include “pinched nerve”, ruptured disc, slipped disc and torn disc. For our purposes, we’ll stick with the term “bulging disc” to avoid any further confusion.
You may not know this, but the pain associated with a bulging disk is not caused by the disk itself. The pain is actually caused by what leaks from the disc when it’s under pressure. This material, in turn, irritates a nerve or nerves near the site of the bulging disc. This can cause “radicular” (nerve root) pain. When that happens, the pain can show up elsewhere in the body. For example, a bulging disc in the lower spinal column can manifest as sciatica, with the pain radiating down one or both legs.
