In brief: MRI

Your MRI findings suggest degenerative disk disease in your lower back, with some indication there may be compression of one of the nerves that would cause pain in your leg.
However, the meaning and importance of these findings depends entirely on the symptoms you are having. What is important is if your symptoms are resolving with rest and anti-inflammatory medicines.
