Lower back pain
Been having lower back pain for the past week and shooting pain stretches all the way to my right hip and thigh. Walking helps for a little time but as soon as i sit the pain flares up again. Not able to sit straight for more than 5-10 minutes. Is it a bone issue or a nerve issue? Please guide. Thanks.

Pain seem mechanical in nature. May be due to sacro iliac joint ( between spine and pelvis) This pain is less likely due to nerve compression. Pain due to nerve compression mainly go below knees upto feet.
Next Steps
Take analgesic for a week. Gradually build up on activities as per tolerable limit.

Seems to be due to nerve compression at lower back.
Next Steps
Do not bend forward. Use Lumbosacral brace for back support. Apply pain relief spray. Use warm water bags. Can take Tab Flexon MR 2 times a day after food for 3 days. Can start strengthening exercises of the back once pain reduces. Consult if problem continues even after following this advice.
