Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

All the symptoms in the description suggests that you have Lumbar disc disease with radiculopathy (parethesias in the form of tingling,numbness, feeling of coldness etc)

An MRI scan of the lumbar spine is necessary to make an exact diagnosis.

Momentarily, these sensations can be alleviated with the use of Pregablin and Methyl cobalamine supplements.

I suggest you to consult an orthopedic surgeon and follow his advice.

Hope this infomation is helpful. Good day
