I would say my lower back is giving me problems for around a year or so but at that time i thought it was muscle tear as I am someone who work out in the gym frequently. However, the pain doesn't goes off and I continue to work out in the gym thinking that it is just a normal muscle tear.
Just a few weeks ago, I decided to go for MRI as now my left leg couldn't even stretch straight and there will be a sharp pain from the left side of my lower back to my the whole of left leg. I have diagnosed with slipped disc L4 and L5 and the disc is pressing my nerves which is why causing the pain.
I have been going for physiotherapy for around 3 times and i spent around 10 mins doing some stretching that will strengthen my lower back but the pain doesn't seem to go off. I still couldn't stretch my left leg straight. Is it very severe and I have to go for operation? I am just 21 years old and I do not want to go for operation if it can be avoided especially it's at lower back. Would need some advice!
