My age is 27. I had back pain after lifting a patient seven days ago. After two days of this, back pain and tingling started in both my feet and arms. I took painkillers and Gabica. I am on the following medications, Gabica, Methycobal, and Myonal. I only had back pain, no leg pain but tingling in my feet and fingers of my hand. My MRI report revealed mild central broad-based degenerative disc protrusion at L5 S1, causing mild spinal stenosis and mild bilateral neural foraminal narrowing. What are the precautions for me? What should I do about this? Is anything serious? What about my future? Please help.
The disc protrusion at L5-S1 (lumbosacral joint) is causing nerve root compression and causing all the above symptoms that you mentioned. I also see a suspicious annular tear at the same level in the image you have attached (attachments are hidden to protect the patient's identity). The medications prescribed are compatible with these conditions, but along with that, I would also suggest back-strengthening exercises, which will help prevent further damage. If you need to check that annular tear, please upload the full scan for reporting.
If any more doubts, please feel free to ask.
