Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response

I have studied your case.

Due to compression of this nerve root in spine there is pain in your ankle.
Headache is associated due to nerve compression

I will advise you to do MRI whole spine screening.
For these symptoms analgesic and neurotropic[pregabalin] medication can be started.
Till time, avoid lifting weights, Sit with support to back. You can consult physiotherapist for help.
Physiotherapy like ultrasound and interferential therapy will give quick relief.
I will advise to check your vit B12 and vit D3 level.

Till time you can continue your medication.
