Hello,

As per your history, it may be due to disc prolapse.

For further assessment you may require MRI back after spine surgeon consultation.

You may require surgical intervention after consultation.

You may require tablet Pregabalin after consultation.

Till then you can take tablet acetaminophen.

Avoid forward bending.

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

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale, General & Family Physician
