Greetings,  sorry about your pain.

Judging by your description your muscles are under tensed state (shorted).  Hence relaxing your muscles will reduce your pain. There is no way your nerve will be in trouble nor your disc.  Just relax.

Get a myofascial release done by a physio near your place. Will release pain and you will feel better. Then start exercise program as recommended by your physio.

If you cannot get a physio start hamstrings stretching twice daily and ice the back thigh and low back for 10 min. Let me know how you feel, will guide you based on improvement.

Be assured your back pain can be cured.

If any concerns do let me know.

Hello... In any nerve injury complete recovery is mirrage.. Your nerve could have been stretched more than its limit... You might have got MRI scan of spine.. It's required to see if there is disc bulge or disc prolapse in spine... Physiotherapy may give some relief... Consult physiotherapist...
