I am a double board certified US doctor and I can answer this for you. It is very clear.
Weakness from a disc problem and spinal nerve compression can be an emergency.
You need to go to the ER.
They will, depending on exam findings, get and MRI, and refer you either to an orthopedic specialist, or a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist.
Usually, spinal orthopedist.
