Thank you for posting your query.

Twitching and back pain may be related to L4-5 and L5-S1 disc prolapse with compression of the lumbar nerves.

You may benefit from gabapentin capsules, in addition to back extension exercises.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
