Patient :I think I have slipped a disc in my lower back lifting something heavy. I have taken pain killers and have a hot pad on the affected area. I am finding it hard to straighten my back and walk as I am getting severe pain in my lower back, bum and right leg. What would your diagnostic and opinion be. Kind regards. Joe
