Thank you for posting yuor query.
Lower back pain due to degenerative lumbar disc disease
and prolapse of disc is a common problem. It is not a serious disease.
MRI of the lumbar spine
would clarify the diagnosis further.
Epidural injections are standard treatment for severe lumbar pain
. It is a very safe procedure.
In addition, you would require good physiotherapy
Epidural injections may have to be repeated after three months.
