What is L5 sacralization? What are the causes and what are the outcomes? Do I need medical care for this?

Two years ago my height was 1.74m it is now 1.66m. What causes height shrinkage?

I suffer alot from lower back pain and a cold sensation and itchiness in my legs. Could this be a pinched nerve?
