Thank you for posting your query.

Your symptoms are related to the herniated disc at L4-5 region.

For pain relief, you could take pregabalin or gabapentin capsules.

Bed rest is also required if the disc prolapse is severe. In addition, you should avoid bending forwards and lifting heavy weights.

If these measures do not help, epidural injections may be required.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
