Does anyone have experience with this? Probably worrying over nothing but I was diagnosed with a slipped disk yesterday (manual handling injury) and I was warned about the risks, I have numbness in my leg and my bum and saddle area feels numb and tingly too, but I don't have incontinence (although perhaps a bit more urgent but that could be because I'm slower than usual)

Should I be concerned?

Could be. You need to see a doc asap. It can do permanent damage to your nerves.
