Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a 41-year-old female of 5.2 feet and 127 pounds. I have a history of back pain, numbness in both legs and body, feel like to be paralyzed with headache, memory loss, and weakness. I feel tired every day, and have pain in feet when start to step into the ground. Occasionally there is difficulty in the bowel, sexual pain and shortness of breath; if I feel angry. I feel tired and weak and cannot perform routine daily activities due to back pain. I do not take any medication.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You probably have a prolapsed disc, which is causing a severe compression over the nerves. That is why you are feeling numb, paralyzed, and unable to perform. It would help if you underwent an x-ray and MRI of lumbosacral spine for further evaluation and treatment. In the meantime, try,

1.Tablet Dolonex DT (Piroxicam) 20 mg twice a day after food for five days - for back pain.

2.Tablet Myospaz ( Paracetamol and Chlorzoxazone) thrice daily after food for five days - for muscle spasm.

3.Tablet Pantodac (Pantoprazole) 40 mg daily before breakfast for five days - Antacid.

4.Tablet Lyrica (Pregabalin) or Neugatrip (Amitriptyline and Pregabalin) 75 mg after food once in the night for two weeks - for nerve pain.

5.Tablet Vitawell once a day after food at noon for four weeks - Multivitamin.

6. Capsule Uprise (Cholecalciferol) D3 60k once a week after food for eight weeks - vitamin D supplement.

7. Follow work ergonomics.

8. Lumbosacral belt while standing, sitting, and walking for three weeks.

9. To sleep on one side with hips and knees flexed.

10. To avoid forward bending, floor activities, and lifting heavy weights for three months.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
