Discs sit between the vertebrae (the bones in your spine); when one of them is damaged and presses on the nerves, it’s referred to as a slipped disc. As a slipped disc impacts your nerves, it can cause pain in a number of areas of the body, from your neck, back and arms to your hips, buttocks and even legs (if it is your Sciatic nerve that is being compressed). Other symptoms of slipped discs or trapped nerves include numbness, a tingling sensation, or weakness in other areas of the body.
