Lower back pain, hip pain, disc disease, minimal disease, frequent urination. Done MRI. Help?

I,ve had pain in my low back left hip and thigh for sometime now. Thought it was disc disease but MRI shows only minimal disease . Can hardly bear weight on left leg. Also had MRI of this area as well. Frequent urination but have had this for years. Up all night but also not new at my wits end. Feels like if the leg would break everything would be fine. Also pain in left buttocks.

Thanks for writing to us.
It is good that the MRI shows a minimal disease and there is no nerve root compression involved. You need to have a combination of pain killers and muscle relaxants for relief. Regular physical therapy will help after the acute pain subsides.
