this means that you probably have some bone spur
or ligament that is damaging your nerve root
L3, it is causing pains in the areas you mentioned. these kind of neuropathic pains respond to medicines like lyrica
, and the second thing that helps is exercises, so it would be a good idea to see a physiotherapist who could help you by teaching you exercises for the back, spine and legs. this problem will definitely improve but you have to be patient with the therapy.
hope that helps.
