Thanks for writing to us.
It could be due to disc herniation with nerve compression. Have you got any weakness in leg? I would suggest to consult the spine specialist earliest and you may need to get Xray / MRI spine. Right now start antiinflammatory with muscle relaxant and if possible physiotherapy. Thanks.

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
These symptoms are part of lumbar disc degeneration with PIVD where the nerves get compressed by the protruded disc..
There are several treatment modalities with medicines, physiotherapy and with injections in the back called epidural injections and root/facet blocks.
I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the MRI of spine under his/her guidance.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
Dr Saurabh Gupta.
Orthopaedic Surgeon.
