My daughter is 14 years old. I wonder whether she has herniated disc. Because, she has all the symptoms except the numbness in legs and feet. It hurts in the lower part of my back. Usually a herniated disc is from sports injury and heavy lifting. But, she recently have not had any sports injuries or have not done any heavy lifting. But, in the past she had. Her back has been hurting when she cough, sneeze, sit or even walk down my porch steps. It has been hurting for may be two to three weeks now. I have not heard people of her age have a slipped herniated disc and other stuff. Please help.
