No doesn’t seem to be
Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 15 days ago.
Ok. This sounds more of a refered pain from the back. Need to use Diclofenac 50mg thrice a day for 5 to 7 days. It should get better. If it doesn't in 48 hrs then add in Gabapentin 50mg twice a day to it too .

Both need a GP prescription.
