I also get dizzy easily, get muscles aches and pains and get tired easily. actually a lot of my symptoms sound like MS. I have partially numb cheeks and muscle twitches all over. are these all symptoms of a bulging disc?

  • Hello, I am a physical therapist. A bulging disc at the L4-L5 level would potentially give symptoms into the feet but cannot be the reason for sympotms in your hands or cheek. The nerve root that the disc could be pushing on communicates only with regions of the leg. If you are having these symptoms I would recommend seeing an orthopedic doctor to help diagnose exactly what is occuring.
