Need epidural analgesia.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

With the severe pain like you are having the best way to get rid of pain till full recovery is epidural analgesia. For this you will have to talk to your anesthetist or the pain specialist. Since you got an appointment for 24th Sept it is best to attend an ER or another specialist for pain management.

Alternative therapies like TENS and Acupuncture can also help you to some extent.

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.

Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
