I have a bulged disc. Can that turn into a ruptured disc?

Think of your discs as hockey pucks.  They have a kinda bark like skin or cover around them. After enough wear and tear the "bark" can begin to deteriorate. At some point the inside of the disc, kinda like a toothpasty substance begins to leak out and it pushes on nerves causing the pain. There are several different treatments for this.  Make sure you are with a neurologist who specializes in disc disorders.

Don't know, but have recently been diagnosed with the same problem and need some answers because I am in lots of pain all the way down to my toes.  My back doesn't hurt but my butt and leg down into my foot are giving me a lot of pain.  Help
