In brief: Herniated Disc

Please consult with you physician - some patients opt for pain management based on the severity of the pain, other opt for physical therapy to regain strength.

In brief: See spine specialist

Weakness is a concerning symptom. You should seek immediate evaluation by a orthopedic spine surgeon.
You will need appropriate evaluation such as an MRI scan.
