Patient : I have chronic lower back pain. In addition have shooting pain that radiates from my lower back down my legs to my feet. I have been diagnosed with L5-S1 bulging disc. But lately I have been experiencing weakness and pain in both legs. Walking, standing and even driving is unbearable. Is this a result of my bulging disc?
