What is the cause and remedy for intense leg and back pain ?

Sir, I have back pain and pain on the legs ,since I took a heavy weight six month ago.I have done Ayurvedic treatment with massage. there was no gain from it.And had a homeopathic treatment for two months. that also doesn t out well.Now I feel stiffness and pain on most of the lumbar vetebrae . My MRI says.. 1.Straightening of lumbar lordosis with minimal anterior spondylotic changes noted from L3 to L5 levels. 2.Mild posterior bulge noted at L4-5 disc level causing minimal identation on the thecal sac with encroachment on the bilateral lateral recesses causing narrowing. 3.No significant abnormalit in ret of the IV discs,conus medullaris and thecal sac

You seem to be suffering from Lumbar spondylosis with radiculapathy, probably due to strain on your back while lifting heavy weight.There is no reason to panic.Do not lift heavy weights or bend forwards. Try to take bed rest for a day or two. Do use firm mattress while sleeping.Take some muscle relaxants ans gabapentin/pregabalin along with B12 supplements. take hot fomentation and undergo physiotherapy in form of short wave diathermy and IFT.
Do be careful in future, and once when the pain settles do spinal flexion exercises to tone up spinal muscles.Do regular walk once you are pain free and maintain healthy posture. Do avoid lifting heavy weights, bending forwards and maintain the right posture to prevent back strain.
Do not indulge in alternative medicine like homeopathy or ayurveda as this is degenerative disc disease and the maximum benefit you can get is from regular exercise and priper maintenance of posture.
