Hi,

Give tablet Gabapin NT as advised by your doctor and pain killers (SOS). The patient may need neurosurgical intervention if there is no improvement on medicines. If she is obese then obesity is 1 cause. Otherwise, some old trauma or lifting some heavy weight.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
