Herniated Disc: Not necessarily. It depends on whether there is any nerve compression and where, anatomically, the compression is located. Your doctor can provide better advice by performing an MRI of the spine, if he hasn't already. Unless you have had sciatica or a previous history of leg weakness, you can always try a bicycle run and see if it affects you.
