The pain you have ismostly sciatic nerve pain. It's mostly due to pressure or compression of the sciatic nerve during pregnancy/During labour or LSCS operation.
YOu can take tab combiflam & tab. (or inj. of Neurobion Bi weekly 3 injs.)1 tab each twice a day for 5 days. Tab. Neurobion is to be continued for 10 days.this will releave you of the problem.
