Welcome to HCM.
You have L5-S1 disc herniation with left sided leg pain. The herniated disc
fragment usually compress the nerve root
causing the leg pain. To start with it is usually treated with medicine and physiotherapy
. Over a period you get better and resume your all activities. Daily Regular exercise will keep you away from the recurrent episode.
However if you have persistent leg pain not relieved with above measures and restricting your activities then you need to consider next step. Sometimes we consider a nerve root block, localised injection in the spine to fasten your recovery. All this depends upon your symptoms and correlation of the clinical findings with MRI
findings. I would suggest to consult a spine specialist and discuss all the treatment options. Thanks.
