Hi and thanks for the query.
If this is getting better and you able to move and carry out routine activities, f there is no numbness and tingling further down in the legs, then you do not need to seek emergency help and observe this for a couple of days. If this aggravates, with movement or sneezing and abrupt actions, then medical help should be sought.
I would suggest that you start on an anti inflammatory medication like Ibuprofen 400 mg thrice a day (OTC) and massage the back and hip with Ibuprofen liquigel four times a day.
Hope this helps.
