Possibly: If you have a bulging disk that is pressing on a nerve down your left leg, it is possible that this same process could extend around to the other side and that it is now doing the same thing on the right side. See your Family Doc and have an exam, to possibly include MRI looking at your lumbar disks and nerves.

See details: That is a minimal bulge and is likely not the source of your symptoms. See a neurologist and have the issue evaluated.
