Lower back pain

I am having the lower back pain from the last 3-4 months. I cannot bend myself immediately as the pain gets worse and cant lift anything. If i stand continuously for 10-15 mins there is a tingling of pain in the low back. Also, When i walk(keep my foot forward), the pain starts to increase a little. Please suggest what to do.

Hi there.. I can understand your concern.. low backpain could be due to many causes like over use ie muscle strain, hard beds/pillows, any spine fractures, deformities of spine, infection of spine,degenerative disease like disc prolapse, spondylosis. I suggest you change pillow and bed and take rest for a week..Use diclofenac or muscle relaxant containing gel for local application,hot fomentation, oral muscle relaxants, oral pain killers like aceclofenac100mg.. avoid bending, heavy weight lifting, keep changing postures, low back exercises to strengthen back muscles. hope this helped you.. get mri if pain doesn't reduce. Since you have tingling sensation, it could be nerve root compression in spine. Consult nearest orthopedician once get mri of lumbosacral done..
