Twitching/weakness in legs

I have had bilateral leg weakness for about 6 months now.  Two weeks ago I started having twitiching.  I have seen a neuro and after doing clinical tests, he stated firmly that it was not ALS.  I had a lumbar MRI done which showed central disc extrusion with inferior migration deforming the thecal sac at L4-5 and disc bulge and spondylosis causign foraminal compromise with bilateral nerve root impingement at L5-S1.  I had EMG/NCV done on my arms and which showed severe CTS/ulnar nerve issues but no EMG/NCV done on my legs.  My neuro referred me to neuro surgeon who spent maybe 4 minutes with me and said because I wasnt in tremendous pain he didnt think surgery was an option or that these things werte casuing my weakness twitiching.  I have read that you can have such symptoms without tremendous pain.  I want someone to treat my leg weakness/twitching.  Please let me know your thoughts.  Thanks
