What medication is suggested for back pain and difficulty to lift hand?
Since two months i am suffering from back pain (right side) in the middle and towards the right hand and some times i find it very difficult to lift my hand / stretch it up at a stroke and i can t lift any weight except light weight and when ever i do any job like moulding or when i wash clothes i find it difficult i am 53 kgs in weight and i am 5 ft. working on computer and i am 43 years old
The symptoms seem to be related to a pinched nerve in the hand that causes difficulty in lifting weight. I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen in case of pain. I also suggest to avoid high weight. If the symptoms continue, you should see a neurologist for further evaluation.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
