You have not mentioned how you come to know about this condition.Do you have MRI report with you. If it is in early stage then treatment will be physiotherapy and muscle relaxant and Pregabalin and Methylcobal.If it is in late stages then surgery is needed. Till that time, avoid bending forward and weight lifting.
As far as itching is concerned i think it can be allergy to drug.
