Thank you for posting your query. I must admit I had difficulty reading your query due to grammatical and spelling errors, but I was able to understand your problem.

The most important thing is that your problem is not serious and there is no need to worry.

As per the MRI report, one of the nerves in the lumbar region (lower back) is compressed by slipped disc, and is causing symptoms like leg pain associated with numbness.

At present, surgery is not required. The best treatment would be with medications such as pregabalin or gabapentin. In addition, physiotherapy would also be beneficial.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any further information.
