You can start pregabalin capsules.
Thank you for posting your query.
I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist, and would try my best to help you.
I have noted your clinical details, and your symptoms are due to a pinched nerve in the lower back. For relief from nerve pain, you can take pregabalin (lyrica) capsules. In my patients, I usually start a dose of 75 mg once daily at night. This medicine can be safely taken along with your BP and sugar medicines.
I sincerely hope my reply has helped you.
I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.

I have started the medicine and it seems I got little bit relief after 2 doses but if walk little bit then again the pain starts. I also like to add that I feel very much sleepy don't know why. Is it for the medicine?
It would be useful get MRI lumbar spine done.
Thank you for getting back.
It may be useful to get MRI lumbo-sacral spine to detect the exact diagnosis.
Yes, pregabalin capsules do cause sleepiness, especially in the first few days.
