Thank you for posting your query.
I have noted your symptoms as well as the MRI spine findings.
First of all, I would like to reassure you that there is no need to worry about your numbness
Numbness would gradually improve over time, especially if the nerve
compression due to the disc bulge is not severe.
If you can upload the MRI report, it would be more helpful.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
