Hello,

I have studied your case.
Usually nerve compression cant be seen on x ray you may need MRI for this.
there will be age related spondylitis but if there is any nerve compression then that can lead to leg pain.

I will advise you to do MRI spine
Till time, avoid lifting weights, Sit with support to back. You can consult physiotherapist for help.
Physiotherapy like ultrasound and interferential therapy will give quick relief.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Take care.
