Dear patient first of all diagnosis needs to be confirmed with MRI of the lumbo sacral spine. Treatment is bed rest of semifowler position means hip and knee should be flexed. This can be achieved by putting thick pillow beneath your legs. Start tab pregalin x 75 mg one at bedtime with tab medrol 4 mg twice a day for 10 days.if not relieved please consult orthopaedic surgeon nearby your area .
