Taking Gabapentin, Prednisone for sciatica and low back pain. Leg pain, skin numbness

I ve been to many doctors and have been doing physical therapy with no relief for my sciatica and low back pain I m on gabapenten prednisone and flexeril still no pain relief I am wondering what to do as the doctor won t prescribe any pain medication and the pain is unbearable to the point that I get faint and sick. I ve been down pt for two weeks if anything its gotten worse. This all started when I fell down the stairs three months ago. First it was just my hip then I slipped on an apple and the sciatica started. My skin is also numb all down my leg to my foot. Also experiencing shooting pain down the whole leg and at times it feels as though my leg is on fire. I ve gotten little to no sleep and it seem like no one can help.

hi i had gone through your query and understand your sufferings about SCIATICA-LUMBAR SPONDYLOSIS; it is mainly due to degenerative changes in the spine.

treatment plan;
i advise you taking Homeopathic medicines gives safe and permanent cure for your complaints along with management.

1.MANAGEMENT ;

-Proper nutrition with calcium rich foods would prevent or delay bone degeneration.
-Exercise is an ingredient which is usually neglected, which sways the body metabolism into proper balance and is of prime importance.
-Obesity causes a constant weight on the lower back and contributes to this condition and should be kept under check.
-Lifestyle modification should be done
-Proper posture with good ergonomics at the work place and home are essential.
-While lifting heavy weights care needs to be observed.

2.TREATMENT;

Homeopathy has a very promising role in the treatment of lumbar spondylosis. The long term results of homeopathy are very encouraging. Homoeopathic treatment of lumbar spondylosis is dependent upon an important factor i.e. amounts of degenerative changes that have taken place in the bones and the disk. In other words the extent of damage to your spine will determine the speed at which your problem gets cured and also to what extent you get cured.

consult your local homeopathic physician for correct diagnosis of the case and remedy to fit your complaints.
