Hellofirst, it depends on the cause of your pain.I am assuming this is from disc problems.If so, this needs a consultation from a PM&R specialist. In the UK, this is called a non-invasive orthopedist.A comprehensive manual medicine is the first order of business.Then, proper pain medication, which might range from neurologically acting medicine, such as gabapentin, even to narcotics. But there are a variety of others and anti spasmodics might be used short term.An anti inflammatory diet is required. And essential.Anti inflammatory dietary specifics should be used as well, such as ginger root and turmeric.Acupuncture is one of the best adjunctive alternative therapies.In the case of disc pain that does not resolve, surgery is often indicated.You need this entire assessment from the appropriate specialists, and a pain management doctor should now be in charge of your case.If it is your GP, then you need to find out his pain management experience, and go over this post with him/her. OK, so that is an initial answer….Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
