Hi, PIVD means your nerves being pressed upon by a disc. The symptoms as well as the treatment options vary with the severity. Remember, lifting anything heavy, sitting for long hours, sitting on the ground are better avoided for the present. Hot fomentation, a bit of physiotherapy will help. If you feel decreased power or sensations in the legs, get an MRI done.
