This my MRI result. Need help in understanding.

MR LUMBAR SPINE W WO CONTRAST CLINICAL HISTORY: 724.4 - Thoracic or lumbosacral neuritis or radiculitis, unspecified 719.45 - Pain in joint, pelvic region and thigh low back pain; with lle sciatica COMPARISON: None TECHNIQUE: Multiplanar, multi-sequence MR images were obtained through the lumbar spine without administration of intravenous gadolinium. Patient motion degrades image quality on the axial images. FINDINGS: There is normal alignment and vertebral body heights are preserved. There is hyperintense T1/T2 signal within the inferior aspect of the T12 vertebral body likely representing a hemangioma. Otherwise, the marrow signal is normal. There are disk bulges noted throughout the lumbar spine. There is loss of the intervertebral disk spaces of the lower lumbar spine. The spinal cord is normal and the conus medullaris terminates at a normal
level On axial images, L1/L2: Within normal limits. L2/L3: There is a disk bulge with no significant spinal canal or neuroforaminal stenosis. L3/L4: There is a right foraminal disk protrusion with mild right neuroforaminal stenosis. No spinal canal stenosis is identified. The left
neural foramen is within normal limits. L4/L5: There is thickening of the ligamentum flavum with no significant spinal canal stenosis. There is mild left neuroforaminal stenosis bilaterally. L5/S1: There is a disk bulge no significant spinal canal stenosis. No neuroforaminal stenosis is identified. Paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable. IMPRESSION: Multilevel degenerative disease without significant spinal canal stenosis.
Foraminal disk protrusion at L3/L4 causing mild right neuroforaminal stenosis.
