Brief Answer:
Getting correct treatment.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.

I have seen the attached reports. The symptoms that you have are related to vitamin D 3 deficiency. The low back pain is due to disc prolapse and nerve root compression at L5-S1. The pain in right ankle can be due to possible bony spurs in the area.

You are getting the right treatment. Regular exercise and physiotherapy are necessary in addition to the supplements prescribed for a long term relief. The symptoms will take 3-4 weeks to show an improvement.

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.

Details below.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
1. You can continue walking if it is not very painful. If the pain is acute then let the pain subside first then continue your routine.
2. Yes. Cholecalciferol needs to be continued till your Vitamin D 3 level return to normal. It is usually given for 6-8 weeks.
3. This is an age related degenerative change of the spine. Regular physiotehrapy exercises will help in decreasing the disease progression.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

Hi, I had three injections 4 years ago for my sciatica, epidural, facit joint and nerve block, all made the pain worse, but, during the last injection, the nerve block i lit up like a xmas tree pain got so bad, i could here the Doctor say, youve put the needle in to far, take it out, then they gave me a second injection and I was ok for 24 hours, Im on oxycontin since and past two years also nurontin and prothieden, plus lidocaine patches. My sciatic pain was nothing like this, I have burning sensations on soles of my feet and pain all the way down my left leg 24/7, wake at night by pain, Doctor's dont believe me that injections could mess me up so bad, help?

i was not as informative as i should of been in my last question one of the answers said. start by again saying i am 32 years old,female,suffering for over 7 years now of middle, but intensly more lower back pain just above my buttocks , to the point were i cant walk my dog for 3 mins, before it is so painfuld i can not make it home without stoping,i also have severe pain laying on either side of my body, i feel pain on my side of my buttocks that goes down to me knees. i have had bad posture that started at an early age when i developed breasts at an early age, and they are a bigger size, D, i have no trauma to my body to cause this to of happend, it just has gotten worse and worse over the years, and it has kept me from working for the last 6 years. I get very little to no relief from heat pads, or ice pads, or advile, or alieve, and i am allergic to tylenol and perkcodan has helped me not at all, I also get severe headaches, and the only relief i have ever gotten were i have felt i could actually walk and move without this pain is when a friend gave me an oxycotin and a dilauded both of which i researched before taking. That was the one good day i have had in years, i belive it was called relief, a life worth living. Unfortunatly while doing my research i see there is a lot of people who misuse these drugs and fear i would not stand a chance of being perscribed them. which is a total let down for me cause that was something really worked for me and i felt happy for once, as u can amagine a life filled with pain is no life at all, and causes a great deal of depression . so i am in your hands as my aniety and fear of doctor and pain and the ability to get to own, leads me hear asking you, thank u so much for your time.
