dear pt

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

Hi Anita;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The pain you are describing which starts in back and is radiated or spreads to both legs can be due to Prolapse intervertebral disc(slip disc in common language).You need toconsult a Orthopaedic surgeon for examination.You may require to get a X-ray of spine or even MRI for better diagnosis.After seeing the reports he will advise the treatment you require.Till then take rest ;while walking or working you can use a Lumbar spine belt.Also you can take some pain killers and multivitamins till you get appointment with a Ortho.
Take care.
