Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The pain you have is radicular pain. It is very severe in intensity and needs the best of pain killers to get rid of the same.

PHENIBARBITOL is an anticonvulsive (anti seizure) medication which has n role to play in pain management.

You can use OxyContin (oxycodone) which is a narcotic pain reliever if you are not allergic to.

Oxycodone usually is the best choice in people with multiple drug allergies. Do ask your pain management therapist to consider the same and advice.

Hope, I answered your query.
