Have pain in lower back. Treatment?

My lower back seems to either have a pinched nerve or disc issues. It causes so much pain that my husband has to lift my legs for me at times. It seems when i lay on a hard surface (floor) etc my back feels like it slips and instant pain in my lower back occurs. Sometimes when I stand on one leg (either one) that sharp pain paralizes me and I almost have to re-adjust my hips to even be able to move. Help, I cant stand it anymore and need to look into a back doctor ASAP!

Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms that you have described are likely to be due to degenerative disc disease causing the nerve root compression. You need to consult an orthopedician for proper evaluation and investigations like MRI so that treatment can be started.

Welcome to HCM,
You have not mentioned your age.
If you are elderly then possibility of having Osteo artheritic changes in your lumbo sacral spines giving nerve irritation giving you this problem.
Go for x-ray lumbo-sacral region.
Consult spine specialist and go for the treatment, physiotherapy as per advise given by him.
Mean while use hard bed for sleeping, do no bend and avoid weight lifting.
Ok and bye.
