Hello,

It may be due to nerve compression at lumbar spine level.

For further assessment you may require MRI back, nerve conduction studies, vit b 12 level after spine surgeon consultation.

For pain you can take tablet acetaminophen.

You may require tablet Pregabalin and multivitamin after consultation

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

Regards,
