Danger of paralysis with herniated disk & TMS symptoms?

    3 weeks ago I started feeling leg pain which intensified to the point of going to the ER.
    Did MRI and the doctor showed me that I have a herniated disk.
    Had intense pains for 3 days and then it subsided very quickly.
    Now my right leg is still a little numb and feels like the muscles are cramped when I move.
    While resting at home, I read the Healing Back Pain book and I am a textbook TMS case.

    My question is this:
    The doctor said that the nerve blockage caused by a disk hernia can be so bad as to fully paralyze a person.
    Are these two different conditions?
    Can TMS cause full paralysis and loss of bladder control?
    Obviously, the doctor has never heard of TMS, so how can I differentiate between real structural risk and TMS?
