Hello,

As a first line management you can take drugs like gabapentin for pain relief.
In severe cases steroid injection to the spine may be required.
Consult a spine surgeon and he will direct you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Dr. Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician
