Brief Answer:
Go for MRI scan of cervical and lumbar spine

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for your query.

You might be having disc prolapse with nerve root compression. This might be due to previous injury.

I suggest you to have MRI scan of cervical and lumbar spine to know the exact pathology. The management protocol depends on the severity of nerve compression.

Temporary pain relief can be obtained by using an appropriate analgesic or muscle relaxant ,Pregabalin & methylcobalamine supplements.

You can share your MRI report with me or with your doctor.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
