For a 21 yr old person with such severe pain of the back I would be concerned and some more serious causes of back pain should be ruled out, for example an infection, TB of the spine etc. I am not suggesting that you have any of those conditions but the diagnosis of "degenerative" spine at 21 years of age is unlikely. You should see an orthopedic surgeon specialising in spines
