I would be concerned about impingement or pressure on the spinal cord by a bulging or herniated disc in the neck. Rather than pinching a nerve root latterally, I think your symptoms suggest a central pressure directly on the spinal cord affecting your legs. I recommend consulting a neurologist or neurosurgeon for evaluation & appropriate testing.
