A lumbar herniated disc can cause severe pain. Lumbar spinal discs become herniated when their tough external coat is damaged and allows the softer, gelatinous interior of the spinal disc to push out. A lumbar herniated disc can compress adjacent nerves causing compression symptoms along the path supplied by that nerve. A lumbar herniated disc can also irritate the nerves supplying the legs.
