L5 Radiculopathy

I have had an MRI and was told that it was normal.  I then had an EMG which showed a L5 Radiculopathy.  

A couple of questions: 1) Is that correct for the MRI not to show anything but the EMG did?

2) My doctor (not a nuerologist) recommended getting on Medoral Dose Pack (steriods)

3) I'm not sure my doctor is fully capable of handling this

Finally, my left leg gets numb and I get a tingling feeling in my feet.  Also, when it gets really severe, I have no feeling from the waist down, have problems urinating and stomach swells up.
