The work-up so far has focused on the lumbar spine for the origin of your leg pain. This makes sense as the thoracic spine herniation only very rarely causes leg pain. The thoracic symptoms you allude to “I have sharp shooting pain in my stomach, back below my arms pits, electric pain that moves up my spine occasionally” could be from this thoracic disc herniation.

A thoracic diagnostic epidural would help to discover if the thoracic symptoms originated from the herniation.
