Hello dear Thanks for reaching out and providing elaborate information.. Now, you have got a low back pain which is localised , however your MRI shows multiple findings. Truth is the mri findings are immaterial in your case however, there is something which is worrisome. You are  overweight which is putting more stress on the joints of your back. Additionally your core muscles are weak which is leading to back pain. You need to be put on specific exercises and screened for vitamin deficiencies as well. Consult back with any blood tests if done. Regards Dr Vipin Gupta

Disc related back pain has a very good chance of improving with back exercises and taking care of the posture and walking daily for 45 min . Be aware of the red flags like weakness in both lower limbs / bowel bladder disturbance .
