Are my MRI spine lumbar and sacral results serious?

L1 normal concus.   T12-L1 degenerative desiccated disc, predominantly right sided disc protrusion not causing significant canal stenosis or foraminal narrowing.    L3-L4 degenerative disc with circumferential disc bulge identing the theca & focal central extrusion with slight inferior migration of the extruded disc. No significant canal stenosis or foraminal narrowing.     L4-L5 degenerative disc with circumferential disc bulge narrowing both lateral recesses & causing mild bilateral foraminal narrowing.     L5-S1 degenerative, desiccated disc with loss of height & a focal central disc protrusion indenting the theca in close proximity to the traversing nerve roots. Mild bilateral foraminal narrowing. No cauda equina compression.
Someone please shed abit of light on this for me please as it's worrying me to death. Thanks.
