1. initial approach is to get investigations done first and then plan the treatment.
2. keeping in view the history provided, start with conservative line of treatment such as pain killers, muscle relaxant, heat application and physiotherapy.
3. In case symptoms continue, it shall be very appropriate to have an appointment with a neurologist or neurosurgeon for a proper clinical evaluation.

i. get a x-ray of back done and even MRI of back may also be needed to determine underlying cause. [This could help to identify a degenerative disease at its earlier stages], if any
