Brief Answer:
Please visit orthopedist.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Thank you for the query.

Your symptoms seem to be caused by some spine disc herniation or fracture (if you have had an injury). If physical therapy does not help, the next step is an MRI of this area. You may need a surgical intervention. It would be good to consult orthopedist with this issue.

Hope this helps.
Regards.
