    Soooooo I have been having some sciatica for about the past month. It has progressively gotten worse but stayed mainly localized in my butt. In the past few days I have felt some tingling and numbness in my leg and foot for no apparent reason. Last night I asked an ER Doc that rolls with us what is going on and told him the symptoms. Long story short, I am out 2-3 weeks with a bulging disk and on anti-inflammatories........Anyone else ever have this happen to them?

    The crazy thing is my back doesn't hurt at all. It has been a little sore on occasion but that is about it. Oh well this is for the best.....

    Did you get an MRI? How did he know it was a bulging disc?
