Welcome to the forum.
You are suffering from PIVD (Prolapsed Inter vertebral Disc) at L1-l2 and L4-L5 level. You don't need surgery but to be confirmed by clinical examination. To get rid from this problem you can go for medication with physiotherapy and some precautions. Precautions to be followed are:
1. Avoid jerky movements of spine.
2. Wear LS belt while traveling or driving.
3. Take complete bed rest in worse conditions.
4. Do regular spine exercise as advised by your physiotherapy.
5. Use hard bed to sleep.
6. Take some analgesic and apply diclo gel locally in pain.
7. Don't lift weight.
I hope this is helpful to you.
