Is it possible that a herniated dics at l2/l3 can be the primary cause of bilateral hamstring pain or can it be attributed to stenosis from l1-l4?

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
Both a disc hernaition at l2-3 and lumbar stenosis from L1 to L4 can cause pain in the back of the thighs.
A significant disc herniation may cause lumbar stenosis.
