Brief Answer:

Spinal pathologies to consider.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

It is necessary first for a correct diagnosis before to be treated.

Symptoms you describe indicate a problem with your spine, conditions such herniated disc disease, spondylosis, or paravertebral muscles damage should be considered and evaluated further.

Besides a medical examination by your Doctor, imaging studies such as spinal X-rays and MRI are necessary.

Please discuss with your doctor about these issues.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
