In brief: No

Cervical disc herniations can but not disc bulges these are often asymptomatic incidental findings more likely than not.
Cant be used to explain nerve dysfunction so great so as to cause weakness exploration of another theory for arm weakness is in your best interest

In brief: Not exactly

Disc bulges or herniated discs in your back cannot really affect your arms.
You may have some problems in your cervical spine, which could explain your arm symptoms. Bring this up to your spine surgeon.
