1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

All depend where the bulging of the disc is located, central bulging do not produce compressure of the nerve root however a lateral disc bulge could if the size is large enough.

Agree with above. Central bulging or herniation won't put pressure on spinal nerves, but can compress spinal cord.
