Brief Answer:
Slip disc

Detailed Answer:
Hi there.
Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
Thanks for the query.

Do you have tingling or numbness or weakness of the legs?

It appears got may be having slip disc. This tends to aggravate on coughing and can get worse on bending forwards, lifting weights.

Kindly get an Xray and MRI of your lumbosacral spine done to confirm.

Apply hot water bag to the painful regions. Take Tablet Myospas Th 8mg tablet twice a day for 5 days. Avoid bending forwards or lifting weights. Apply pain killer gel to the painful region.

Kindly do answer my question for me to be in a better position to help you.

Brief Answer:
Those are not the right medicines for your condition

Detailed Answer:
I don't think those medicines will help you in this condition. They are for reducing swelling and to help your sleep.
