Hi, this is Dr Stan, here to help you.Board Certified with 40 years of Patient Care. I will respond with my answer shortly. Thank you.
This is most likely a positional circulation problem, not a nerve problem. You said it comes back quickly. Does it come back when you start to walk or change position? How old are you and do you take any medications?
In that case it could be nerve induced. Discuss with your PCP who may feel after a thorough examination that an MRI is needed. The medication is not causing it. I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. Please leave a positive rating of 3-5 stars. This is how I am credited for my response. Thank you and feel better.
It is not an emergency unless it becomes a continuous problem. An MRI would show compression of a nerve in your low back. Circulatory, because of your high blood pressure.
Now you are describing a pinched nerve, at the Lumbar 3-4 level. Again it is not an emergency, but should be evaluated by either your PCP or an Orthopedist. If you don't have insurance you can be evaluated at an Urgent Care Center. You can try light stretching exercises and over the counter NSAIDS such as Advil or Aleve until you can get evaluated.
