lower back pain with tingly fingers

Just trying to see if I need a Dr's appointment or an ice pack. I'm a 20 year old male and I work at home depot. A few months ago I noticed my lower back started hurting. I tried icy hot patches and muscle rub but they didn't help. That makes me think its something in my spine(but I'm no Dr). A few weeks ago my fingers would tingle every now and then. Now I know "I'm still a young guy". Now even when I put my pants on, it just about takes my breath away. Any help would be awesome. Thanks

  • I think it's very worth to get an appointment and investigate if there is anything wrong. If there is any disc issue you could take precautions to avoid further damages.
  • Should I go right the chiropractor and see if they can fix me first? Or go to the Dr? Sorry for the dumb questions I'm new at back problems.
  • I would go to a Dr.

    I would go to a Dr. and get a scan to investigate. I wouldn't let Chiros to touch without knowing the exact issue. Sometime their treatments can make it worse, if they do without proper investigations. According to my opinion only a MRI can give you reasonable picture.

    This is all about my experience. I ended up in a worst situation as I didn't do proper investigations at the first place and was keep doing temporary fixes.
  • Thanks for the advice!
