Hello dear,
The symptoms can be attributed to musculo-skeletal injury or nerve entrapment.
Symptomatic relief can be obtained by heat therapy, application of analgesic & muscle relaxant gel, intake of analgesics like Diclofenac + Serratiopeptidase along with Pantoprazole preparations and nervigenic agents like Vit B12, Vit B6.
Take care.

Icing will help in pain relief

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,

Thanks for your follow up query.

You can do icing as well.
Application of ice will help in pain relief and relaxation of soft tissue.

However, if pain still persists, kindly consult an Orthopedician & get a proper clinical examination done.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.

Hi, my urine flow recently became completely blocked. The Urologist put me on Jalyn for 6 days. When that didn t work he wants to do a transurethral microwave thermotherapy. Do you think that is enough time to see if a drug works and does the microwave procedure have a good record for results. Thanks

About a week and a half ago i slipped and fell down hard wood stairs, my lower back smacked against 3 or 4 of the steps as i went down, Most of the pain has subisded except for one spot in the center of my lower back and I have been having severe headaches since the fall. Also I should mention that when I was a young teenager I broke my L3 vertabrae in three spots. Is it normal for this pain to be lingering like this? Nothing helps, I have tried ice and heat therapy, massage, Advil, and Tylenol.
