tingling crawling sensation in my feet.

I have recently just started getting these  symptoms , however this was my recent Lumbar spine CT results. mild-moderate L5/S1 disc degeneration with a right paracentral disc protrusion potentially irritating the descending  S1 nerve root in the lateral recess. Possible small associated disc extrusion extending superiorly is potentially irritating the descending L5nerve root in the lateral recess .  I have been referred for a MRI and  referred to a neurosurgeon . I was told this would happen as I was told to expect surgery to try and prevent further damage. any advice ? my back was now injured near 3 months ago but these are new symptoms as aposed to the usual restricted movement and constant winding sensation in my hips . regards Dusty
