Lower Back Pain

Since last week Wednesday, I have been having lower back pain with some discomfort in legs too but not excruciating pain. If I stand then to sit I need to adjust a bit and likewise when I am sitting, to stand and walk I need to adjust a bit. I have put on Volini and out hot water bag. It's a little better since last week but still not fully fit. I suspect some kind of slip disc, early stages may be. I work in IT industry to most time is sitting either in office or at work. Please suggest.

Any back pain along with leg pain neednot be slip disc always ...sacroiliac joint and facet joint n ofcourse piriformis syndrome are the few conditions in which u can have back pain more than leg pain.Kindly consult a pain physician....

Hello... If you suspect slip disc get MRI scan of spine.. Before that consult orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon doctor will do leg raising test.. For mild pain physiotherapy is sufficient ,if pain is severe surgery has to be done... Don't lift weight ,don't climb stairs for now... Consult doctor.
