Be properly guided by a spinal orthopaedic surgeon to see the extent and amount of degeneration at your age group though it doesn't get  better but can recur now and then and can haunt you bcoz of your young age group

Straightening of lumbar lordosis is due to muscle spasm. It returns to the normal position once the spasm is relieved. The degeneration, however, doesnt normalise. Kindly consult for a clinical examination and better suggestions.
