This is a ruptured disk ....
The disks cushion between the vertebral bones
The disk have a tough outer coat of connective tissue ( annulus)
They have a softer gel interior
The annular tear means the tough outer layer has been disrupted and fragment of this disk are pushed out to compress the edge of the spinal cord ( thecal sac) and press upon the spaces which allow the spinal nerves exit
I think that you should consult an orthpedic sugeon or neurosurgeon to consider surgery to correct this problem ...
I suspect that this level problem will continue to give you possibly both back pain, leg pain, and weakness ....
I hope that this information is helpful for you

I will be happy to get back with you

Thank you and Best Regards,
