Hi there. Your MRI shows intervertebral disc bulge backwards, and intervertebral joints are affected causing potential nerve irritation due to neural foraminal narrowing. There is moderate both sided neural foraminal narrowing at L4/L5 levels and disc bulge/herniation at L3/L4 levels which can cause potential nerve compression of the exiting nerve roots at these levels. Consult a neurologist for clinical correlation of findings.  Treatment of symptoms if any would be NSAIDs, acupressure, epidural injection of steroids, physiotherapy and lastly surgical decompression if symptoms are severe. Hope this helps. Take care.
