Hi Bryan, your history and symptoms suggest that you have lumbar disc disease
(pressure on the nerve roots causing tingling
,numbness down the leg). The culprit here is the lumbar intervertebral disc
. The initial management for this would be conservative by means of rest, analgesics, pelvic traction, avoiding bending movements etc. If you still have the symptoms even after 6 -8 weeks, based on the MRI findings and clinical symptoms, you may need surgical intervention. Take an orthopedic surgeons consultation and follow his advise. Good luck.
