Painful clicking in the lower back leading to numbness in legs and pricking in feet. Cause and remedy?

I am having alot of painful clicking in my lower right back deep inside the joint . It can also lead to numbness down my legs and pins and needles in my feet . Occasionally my lower right back feels as if something is moving inside (a very strange feeling). I am only a 23 year old female. I am adopted, however, I do know that a couple of my older siblings have sciatica and/or extreme lower back pain .

Thanks for writing to us.

Your symptoms are likely to be due to nerve root compression. A follow up MRI scan will help in confirming the findings.
Since there is only numbness of the affected area it suggests that the affection of nerve root is only minimal.
Such minor symptoms are usually taken care of by Methylcobalamin supplements which you can take after consulting your orthopedician

Wishing you good health...
