Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
With your description of pain I would think in terms of slipped disc at L5-S1 .
I would recommend pain killers , muscle relaxants , physiotherapy .
Also please get an MRI of lumbo -sacral spine to look for presence and extent of disc prolapse.

i have been experiencing chest pain on my right side chest, As well as my right side of my back. This has been going on for 3 plus weeks. It feels like a burning sensation as well as some periods of shortness of breath. My left leg has been going numb for the past 6 months, Feels like pins and needles, And gets a cold tingle sensation when i touch it. Don t know if this connected I just want to see if i have something to worry about. Normally i can shake off pain, But this is getting to be a bit too much for me.

Hi, i had my period almost a week ago & i ve been using menstrual cup. On the second day i fee pain on the posterior part & perenial area, i thought it could be due to the tip of the menstrual cup that hits the area, so i switched to pads that day. The following day i switched back to mentrual cup again since we went swimming in pool. We stayed there til evening, went back home & i fell asleep without changing. Woke up after 3 hours, i showered, cleaned & changed, the following day i still feel pain & it feels like it s heavy & when i checked i saw some bumps on the right side of my labia majora & the outer right side of my labia minora (this part has like a blackhead like kind of thing) & i also noticed like i have some dried rashes (or like a dried wound that is about to heal - dark spots) in the perennial area. Last night i decided to do some acv douching for about 15 mins. Today it is very itchy with burning sensation, sharp & pricky feeling & it reached around anus area I ve been going going back to the toilet every now & then to wash as the itchiness in unbearable. I m quite worried now, not sure if this is from the mentrual cup or the pool & did not get cleaned tight away or douching part.
