Hi Nicholas,
Thanks for writing in
I am unable to see your reports as free questions do not allow you to attach reports simultaneously. However, given your history, I can tell you that the treatment you are receiving is inappropriate. It seems you are suffering from sciatica or some kind of nerve compression. The treatment for this is drugs like gabapentin and some exercises. The following stretches should help:
But to be doubly sure, I need to see your reports so that we know the right cause. You are receiving some antibiotics and pain killers which would not solve your problem. I would be able to help you if you can post a query on the paid forum as I need to see your reports.
Hope this helps
