Thanks for your query.
Your symptom are suggestive of nerve compression at lower spine. It could be due to degenerative disc disease. Management depends upon clinical picture and MRI reports. You can consult me directly through my profile after MRI report.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
