Herniated disc / sciatica ?

Hello I was wondering if some could please help.

About a month ago I went on a ride where a jet ski pulls a balloon type bed that you sit
On , as this was being pulled at high speed and due to waves I bounced up and down
This caused my legs to jolt suddenly up in the air.

A day or so after I have had excruciating pain down my left leg and calf when I walk it often goes
But returns after sitting and getting up . I am also getting weird tingling sensations
In hands palms and sometimes fingers . Also had a weird numb weakness pain in left arm near deltoid ,This is causing me a lot of stress anxiety

Is this herniated disc sciatica?

Any advice would be appreciated


  • Get an MRI of your entire spine. (cervical, thoracic, and lumbar)
    Be aware that the radiologist report that will accompany the films is just an interpretation.
    Shop those films to several spine specialized surgeons. Also, what might show up on the films might not actually be what's really going on. Example: A person could be completely pain-free, yet if you MRI their back, it could look awful. Conversely, a person in a ton of pain can exhibit a perfectly healthy looking MRI.
