Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the back along with the pins and needles sensation is likely to be due to a nerve root compression at the level of the spinal cord. You need to take some oral muscle relaxants and methylcobalamin supplements for the relief.

Welcome to HCM

The symptoms you have provided are neurological symptoms because of the nerve fibers compression between the vertebral bodies due to disc degenerative changes. The problem persists until the pressure on the nerve fibers is released. Persistent pressure may further damage the nerves and can result in neurological deficits that may lead to the paralysis of the affected areas.

It is recommended to a visit a good neurologist and a physiotherapist as well as physiotherapy is very much helpful. If normal pain killers do not help, you can use neurotransmitter blockers. Vitamin B complex is also suggested to use as it is important for nerve health.
