Brief Answer:
Likely to be pinched nerves

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome and thanks for your query.
Your symptoms are due to pinched nerves most often due to prolapsed discs.
You could consult an orthopedic doctor or an internist. A MRI of the spine would confirm the diagnosis.
You can be prescribed Gabapentin in addition to muscle relaxant and antiinflammatory analgesic for relief.
Take care

Brief Answer:
Welcome back.

Detailed Answer:

Ibuprofen is an anti inflammatory medicine available OTC, Relaxon or Muscadol are OTC muscle relaxants.
Gabapentin can be prescribed by Internists, Neurologists and Orthopedic surgeons . In some countries GPs are also allowed to prescribe.
MRI cost varies from place to place and also in different institutions in the same place.
In my hospital the cost is USD 400.
