Pinched Nerve

While a pinched nerve can occur throughout your body, having a herniated disc is one of the most common causes of a pinched nerve. For instance, if you have a herniated disc in your lower spine, it may place pressure on the nerve root, which causes radiating pain shooting down the back of your leg.

Symptoms of a pinched nerve include:

  • Feeling as though affected limbs — legs, feet or hands — have fallen asleep
  • Muscle weakness
  • Numbness in areas affected by the nerve
  • Pins and needles sensations in affected areas
  • Sharp, aching or burning pain radiating outward


Pinched nerves occur when excessive pressure is placed on your nerves by surrounding tissues. This can be caused by a variety of things, including:

  • Bone spurs
  • Certain illnesses, such as diabetes, thyroid disease or rheumatoid arthritis
  • Herniated disc problem
  • Hobbies
  • Injuries
  • Obesity
  • Repetitive motion from work
