my name is Sohaib I am 22 yrs old and suffering from lower back pain for the last 5 years, I started to go to gyms at 17 yrs old when I was around 98 pounds (I am a skinny guy currently weighing at 120 pounds) and performed very heavy back exercise that had me sitting for 3 hours I couldn't walk so eventually I gave up the gym, the pain in the lower back was light so I never gave it much value but with time I feel my legs are getting weaker even walking a few yards has become difficult.
For the diagnosis I consulted an Orthopedic Surgeon who told me that it was due to back muscles as they have contracted and become week, he gave me a few medicines those however relieved the slight pain I felt but did not fix the issue with my legs and the doctor was unable to understand the situation further.
Next I went to a Hakeem(Cultural Medicinal Doctor) and he advised that the nerves supplying blood to the lower body were pinched and they need to be brought back to original position to fix the issue, this description seemed logical and I took a month long period of physio therapy, after therapies I did use to feel better for 6-8 hours but after that the same situation.
Now seeking a permanent solution I thought of getting MRI performed, as I believe that this diagnosis that could be nerves being pinched might just be right.
Would this be considered as a correct decision?
Any remedies or advises for the problem would be appreciated
