Hello,

You should undergo X-ray or MRI lumbar spine to know about the spine pathology or nerve entrapment.

Start sleeping on a hard bed. Maintain proper posture while sleeping, sitting, standing, etc.

You may take any skeletal muscle relaxant as chlorzoxazone or tizanidine etc. Start taking any neuro tonic containing methylcobalamin and Pregabalin.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
