Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello,Thank you for your question.I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.I am sorry for your health condition.The symptoms can be due to pinched nerve in the back.This can occur in disc disease which can cause back problem. Other possibilities can be neuropathy or other nerve diseases.Place at least one pillow under your knees when you lie down.This helps to relieve pressure of the disc on the nerve.Rest on a firm mattress or on the floor can help.Apply hot or cold packs to your back.Sometimes ice will work better than heat; at other times, a heating pad will do a better job of relieving pain.Try both to see which one is more effective for you.Local steroid injection often helps to reduce the inflammation and thus pinching on nerve.
Physiotherapy can help.Don't lift anything or bend or sit in soft chairs.Straining at stool irritates the nerve.Eat rich in fiber diet, fruits and vegetables to prevent constipation.You may need MRI to see the exact compression and need to seek advice of spine or orthopedic surgeon.
I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.Regards.
