Disc Bulge : Pain vs Numbness vs Tingling vs Feels like numb


Did you have any idea at what stage these symptoms occurs specially there is a disc bulge touching the nerve in the lower back?

Leg Pain
Back Pain
Numbness with sensational loss in legs
Feels like numb without sensational loss in legs
Tingling in legs

Basically what I want to clarify is which one is better than others (in terms of nerve damage/compression). I’ve heard that Back pain is better than leg pain as centralization is a good thing when there is sciatica. How would you compare pain vs numbness vs tingling vs feels like numb? Which one I get when nerve compress badly? I have the impression that I get feels like numb when there is minor disturbance to the nerve. I’ve asked the same question from my specialist and he couldn’t answer the question quite well. What he indicated was each case is different and there won’t be a specific answer. What do you think in general?

Thank you very much!
