Q. My MRI Scan showed that I have a bulging disc in my lower back. Should I see a spine specialist?
A. Not necessarily. Studies show that many people have a "bulging disc" but have no pain or problems at all. The fact you have a bulging disc is not necessarily a problem, but if you have symptoms of pain, numbness, or weakness, you should see a doctor or a spine specialist.
