Herniated Disc ?


First post here. Ive had on/off back problems for years. But for the last wee while its not been a proble,
Before Xmas I had a flare up. But, unlike last time, its getting worse rather than better.
I got some physio with my work but Im sure it was making it worse rather than better.
Ive been going swimming and that seems to help a bit.
The worse bit is the spams. They used to be just one a night. Now it can be two or during the day as well.
I cant sit down to pee in the morning as I just get stuck on the loo.
Im on dicloflax, co-codomol and diazepam at night. The doc wanted me to take triclyic (anti-depresants) but I didnt want to take them cos of the side effect of weight gain.
Im thinking of asking the doc for an MRI scan. Things shoulnt be getting worse after a month should they?
Any advice please. Im so depressed. 6 weeks ago I was a regular runner. Now I cant hoble to the loo without crying in pain.
