MRI shows disc protrusion

MRI says the following.

C5-6 A large right central paracentral disc protrusion is seen conpressing the ventral aspect of the spinal cord and mild narrowing at the origin of the nephrolith speeded.

I suffer from the following symptoms :
numbness and tingling in my arms and legs from the fingers to upper arms and toes to above the knees.
Intense burning pain in the right upper arm.
Shoulder blade pain
Neck pain
lower back pain and muscle spasms
lip and nose numbness
tongue pain

Is it really possible to suffer all those symptoms from a simple disc problem?

Add chest pain (on the sternum)

This one is really curious. ...You know that "sting" you feel when you clap your hands or slap your skin sharply? I don't feel that sting. If I poke myself with a fairly sharp object I can definitely feel that but it is diminished. But if I slap or "poke" the surface of my skin on my arms and legs with a rounded object it is harder to detect.

Any input or opinions would help please.
