Doctor: HiThanks for your queryI have gone through your question in detail and understand your concern.It may be possible that you may be having early spondylitis with compressive neuropathy as it is common in your age. Treatment of it is analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. You can take Mecobalamine for neuralgic pain.Second possibility is disc prolapse with radiculopathy. Treatment is rest in lateral position, analgesic and Mecobalamin.Third possibility is simple muscular pain.
