Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in the lower back that you have is likely to be due to degenerative changes in the spine causing a disc prolapse. This might also be causing a compression of the nerve roots causing the muscle weakness and urinary incontinence.
You need an MRI of the spine for proper diagnosis. Consulting a neurologist is recommended.
A combination of pain killer and an oral muscle relaxant along with methylcobalamin supplements will help in symptomatic relief. Lie on a hard bed till then and avoid bending forwards.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
