Suggest remedies for severe pain in neck and lumbar discs
WHAT prescription drugs can alleviate this hell?
Oral musc;e relaxants with pain killers can help.
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in the neck and lumbar discs can be decreased with a combination of pain killers and oral muscle relaxants. You can get a good combination prescribed from your orthopedician after an assessment.
In addition to this you need to maintain a good hydration and start with isometric neck and spine exercises under the guidance of a physiotherapist.
You can also do a hot compress in the painful area to relax the spasmodic muscles.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.

Decompression can help.
Thanks for writing again.
The decompression surgery can help but that depends on the extent of compression of your nerve roots. It is best to consult a neurosurgeon with the latest MRI scan report to discuss about the available treatment options.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
It may need a revision surgery after 7-10 years.
Decompression lasts and it helps also but it cannot prevent the prolapse of other discs due to aging or wear and tear.
It will provide you relief for a few years and after that a revision surgery is needed.
Disc replacement is a better option.
Artificial disk surgery is better and more long lasting but only your neurosurgeon can decide if you are a suitable candidate for disc replacement or not, after studying your MRI scan reports in detail.
Disc replacement can be associated with complications like infection and graft rejection which are more difficult to treat.
