Had lower back pain due to herniated disc on right side, tingling sensation in right arm to foot. Suggestion?

I have had lower back pain due to a herniated disc on my right side, and in the last couple of weeks I have started to have pain and tingling in my right arm and down my right leg to my foot . I have also had issues with sciatica as well. This pain is constant and I am very concerned. I have had an MRI several years ago which gave the diagnosis of herniated disc....What would you advise?

Thanks for the query. Disc prolapse is an irreversible change. Although you remain asymptomatic for years but it can cause sciatica again. Now you have leg problem as well. I think you nerve is getting pinched due disc herniation. I would suggest to consult a spine specialist and get a fresh Mri which will clear the picture. Regarding treatment for time being start anti inflammatory with muscle relaxants and bed rest. Thanks.
