Lower back pain. Why has it been increasing across hips and thighs? Cause and treatment?

i started having pain in my lower back about four days ago, it wasn t restricting me so i didn t think much about it and continued with my activities. i am a professional modern dancer so my activities can be physically intense. yesterday the pain increased and traveled into my right hip and upper thigh. i am also experiencing twitching in only my thigh and numbness only from my knee to my ankle . it s extremely uncomfortable in almost any position. it s very painful to walk or stand still. it s painful to stretch . elevating only relieves briefly,then i have to find a new position.all of this only occuring to my RIGHT lower back, hip, and thigh/leg. what caused or is causing this and what can i do about it?

Hello and thanks for writing in at HCM
As you are a dancer and you have to stretch your body, do all the movements of spine and stands for maximum time. These all type of jerky movements caused low back pain. If you don't take rest or restrict the movement of your spine this pain will increase gradually. This type of pain is diagnosed as Lumber Strain or PIVD depending on the clinical examination.
Take complete rest, analgesic and anti-inflammatory for a week. If the pain still persist or increases than do X-ray Lumber spine and consult your doctor.
Till than avoid all jerky movements of spine, walk as less as you can and no dance. Remember Rest is the best treatment for Low back pain.
Best Wishes
