Not exactly: sure of the question, but you are describing a disc protrusion(herniations) which is pressing on the sac that encloses the spinal cord and cauda equine, and is also pressing on the L5 nerve roots. There is no mention of how severe this is. Talk to your doctor about whether this might be causing your symptoms. Not all disc protrusions produce symptoms.
