Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for your query on ATD. I have gone through your query and understand your concern. You are having backac he with swelling along with warm feeling and discomfort during walking. These all denotes some kind of infection most commonly tuberculosis of spine. So you can get MRI off lumbar spine to see it in detail. You can visit a orthopaedics surgeon for it. Till then rest and analgesic such as ibuprofen are of use. Hope your query get answered. Wishing you a good health. Take care.
