Hello,

It may be a case of radiculopathy. You should, if I may suggest go for MRI-D/L spine. Stop bending; squatting and you can take analgesics SOS with MRI report can consult an orthopedic.

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

Regards,
Dr. BarunBijoy Bhattacharjee
