Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Pain in the back of the spine area, especially those radiating to the legs, is a condition that characteristically describes HNP disease or Nucleus Pulposus Hernia, also known as pinched nerves. This condition occurs when the pads or discs between the vertebrae get out of position and press on the nerves behind them. HNP increases the risk in those who have a history of family members with similar complaints, obesity or overweight, smoking or inhaling secondhand smoke, lifting repetitive heavy weights, and frequently engaging in bending positions.
Even so, because there has not been an adequate history extraction and direct physical examination, of course there are still other possibilities for the condition you are experiencing in the form of:
Muscle injury Arthritis crooked spine or scoliosis Narrowing of the spinal canal Disorders of bone regeneration disorders
So, our advice, have your condition checked by a neurologist or bone specialist (orthopedist) for further investigation of your condition. If deemed necessary, your doctor will perform further tests such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRI. The treatment you will receive later will depend on the results of this examination. This condition may be excessive if it is said to be dangerous because it is rarely or never life threatening. But it can't be called ordinary because as you say, it really disturbs daily activities. So checking it is the most appropriate choice you can do now.
Meanwhile, avoid lifting heavy weights, avoid slouching positions, especially when washing dishes, washing clothes by putting a chair in an upright position, maintaining an ideal body weight, and taking over-the-counter pain medications by reading the rules of use first. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
