This is Dr. David
I am sorry you are having extreme pain.
we are doctors here online to help answer medical questions. we don't see patients face to face.
who ordered you the MRI scan who saw the torn disc and arthritis in your lumbar spine?
how old are you?
do you have health insurance?
you may benefit from seeing a spine surgeon and a pain management doctor to assess your lumbar disk tear to talk about options for therapy.
you may benefit from a steroid injection into your back to help decrease inflammation for the disk to go back into place.
