911Doctor : What is your question for me?
JACUSTOMER-wm4h5q0q- :

what is that

911Doctor : It's pain that you feel in your low back, down through your butt, and probably pain/numbness in your thigh as a result of a nerve in your low back being pinched. It's being pinched by a "herniated disc" and will either be treated with excercises or , perhaps, surgery.
