Was your lower back problem diagnosed ?If yes kindly provide me the details .
Do you have numbness in the lower limbs ?

Do you get pain on walking or is it only in the rest ?
Have you tried any medications ?
Are you on any medications for any other illness ?
How long does the calf pain once it starts to?
