MRI OF LUMBO - SACRAL SPINE

Hello..
I am having acute pain in in my lower back, hips n its radiating to my thighs n legs giving me tingling sensation.. My Doctor suggested me to get MRI of Lumbo Sacral Spine.. now i have got the report which is suggestive of mild degenerative disc lesions at L4/5 & L5/S1 with diffuse posterior desiccated disc bulgings minimally at L4/5 and mildly at L5/S1 having a small focal central type of posterior disc protrusion at L5/S1 producing mild compression on the anterior epidural fat and anterior thecal sac but no remarkable compression on the nerve roots..
The midsagittal diameter of the available spinal canal at the level of the disc is about;
             19 mm at L1/2 disc level,
             19 mm at L2/3 disc level,
             19 mm at L3/4 disc level,
             15 mm at L4/5 disc level and
             11 mm at L5/S1 disc level respectively.
    
  No abnormal perivertebral soft tissue thickening noted..

  What problem I am Having and the solutions thereof to cope with this pain.. Please advise..

Thanks,
Regards,
