Pain from a herniated disk will be more noticeable when you're active, and seems to get better when you're resting. Coughing, sneezing, sitting, driving and bending forward may make the pain worse. The pain gets worse because these movements put more pressure on the nerve. The location of the pain depends on which disk is weak. How bad the pain is depends on how much of the disk is pressing on the nerve. Some people have pain in both legs. In some people, the legs or feet feel numb or tingly.
