Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
As you describe it is a critical condition,the condition is to be judged by the actual appearance of M.R.I.the orthopedic surgeon has to judge the plan of treatment.
I advise you to consult an orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.
I usually prescribe to my patient with such symptoms neurotropic injections for 10 consecutive days, and then periodically,along with other medication and pain medicines.
Avoid taking potato,other tubers, tomato,egg, chicken,and sea foods,till the pains are completely cleared.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
