HelloNoExam first.if this is a disc problem, you could easily make it worse.This needs an exam, and maybe an MRI of the lower spine.This can be compressed nerves, and that is a problem. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions.
