Welcome to HCM

The lower back pain is origination from the your vertebral column at the level of lumber or sacral vertebrae which is due to disc problem mostly due to degenerative changes which causes compression on the spinal cord and results in the pain along the distribution of the nerves which often affects one or both of the limbs. A visit to neurologist is recommended. You can use diclofenic sodium for pain relief which is on the counter available drug.
