The back pain associated with feeling of loss of peer and numbness is something of concern. The feeling of loss of power may be just due to pain, but we cannot assume that unless proven there is no compression of nerves in the spinal canal. Is there a history of injury or fall or a sudden onset of these symptoms? With your history and with history of sensory issues I would suggest an MRI scan of the spine to make sure there are no issues. In the meantime, continue to mobilise and be active. Avoid 2 wheelers if possible. Take painkillers as needed.

Greetings,  sorry about your concern. Your description does not mention the need for observation and which doctor you consulted, orthopaedic or neurologist.  If on observations is that you are advised bed rest or not.  are you admitted to hospital for observations or not.  With the above said information you can be advised on further recommendations.
Next Steps
as you mentioned you do not have any nerve problem excep 5 percent loss of strength,  you are dealing with disc problem.   disc problem can be managed by physio even in your case.  you will need a trigger point release and posture correction to solve your problem.
Health Tips
if really keen to solve your problem get an appointment with me to resolve your issues.
