as your history say you had feature of post central protrusion of disc,radiating pain
to both limb,frankly speaking won.t get relieve by rest.
you should go for mri
,that will reveal disc protrusion
as i am stating, will suggest you to go for permanent and non surgicaltreatment with interventional pain specialist, avoid open surgery,if disc protrusion comes.ask for radiologist
specially for canal dimensions??,to rule out canal stenosis,because u cannot walk more then 5 min
