Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms that you have are suggestive of a disc prolapse. This can be diagnosed by an MRI scan of the lumbar spine. Muscle relaxants and methylcobalamin supplements will help.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
