Brief Answer: possibility of lumbar canal stenosis. Detailed Answer: Hello I Have studied your case, As per your symptoms there is possibility of lumbar canal stenosis. MRI spine will confirm diagnosis. An epidural steroid shot remains a good option Till time you can take analgesic and neurotropic medication. And remember; avoid lifting weights, Sit with support to back. You can consult physiotherapist for help. Physiotherapy like ultrasound and interferential therapy will give temporary relief. Core stabilizing spine exercises will help. I will advise to check your vit B12 and vit D3 level. Another possibility that your respiratory system /or cardiac system is weak so you may need to further investigate for reason of fatigue. After consulting your doctor he may decide for lung function test or 2 –D ECHO. Hope this answers your query.
