Hello from JA
I am Dr. Thomas, board certified in internal medicine and integrative medicine, and I have run programs that take care of this problem when all else has failed.
We can not say nerve pain without knowing a lot more.
What type of scan did you have of the back....if you have a summary of the report please type it in.
What you are describing is disc disease..that is what the injectioons are for.
This causes pain radiating down the leg, assuming you don't have knee or hip arthritis.
The main compoenent of treatment, the most important, is not simply medication, but is the correct physical therapy. And the correct doctor in charge of the physical therapy, and that would be a non invasive orthopedist.
This doctor would use manual therapies to get rid of this pain, home exercises, physical therapy, tractition therapy if needed, along with a repeat injection or the correct medications, depending on exam findings, how mush arthritis there is and where.
Often patients do not get into the correct doctor so this is ultimately important.
OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
Otherwise please choose a positive rating . But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
