Thanks for writing to HCM

You have degenerative changes of spine in the form of decreased disc height and disc bulge at two levels causing compression of nerve roots.
Treatment in physiotherapy ,medicinal and surgery.
Exercises will help you and its result is same as surgery in long term
You can also take pregabalin capsules as it helpful in neuropathic pain.

Take Care
