Before you start your day today activities do the yogasanas which will be very helpful for your problems. Asanas like ardha halasana, bujangasana, salabasana, chakrasana, then Nadia Solana pranayama. Do all these asanas very slowly maintain each pose for 5 secs repeat for 5 times. These will help you to get rid from your problems.
Avoid forward bending, long standing.
When you sit keep small stool to rest your foot this prevent your nerve pull.

Hello dear...
The symptoms as mentioned in your post can be attributed to nerve root compression due to the disc prolapse.
As the day progresses, the gap between the inter vertebral disc decreases(due to compression & dehydration)
Hence, the symptoms also increases.

Under such circumstances, it will be better to consult a Neurologist & get a proper physical examination done.
So that appropriate management steps could be taken.
And MRI scan of the Lumbar spine will be helpful in detecting the present status & progression of the prolapse.

Wishing you a Good Health. Let me know if I need to clarify further.
Thanks & take care.
