Dear XXXXX, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I'm so sorry to hear of your discomfort.
Your symptoms have come due to compression of sciatica nerve, it can be compressed all of a sudden, during postural changes. Associated nerves in lower spine, may also be affected, and this has caused severe lower back pain.
Kindly follow these measures-
-Application of ice packs on lower back for 15 minutes can be done 3-4 times a day.
-Stretching exercises for your low back can help you feel better and may help relieve nerve root compression.
-You should take help from physical therapist. Physical therapy
includes various modalities like - Short wave diathermy, Infra red , Wax therapy , these will help you a lot.
-You can take OTC painkiller like Motrin twice a day.
-You may be prescribed with may be prescribed with Vicodin, It contains acetaminophen and hydrocodone
and will help to resolve symptoms.
-In case, symptoms doesn't improve, then your doctor can prescribe- certain anti-seizure and anti-depressant medications. It helps in blocking pain messages sent to the brain. If required Epidural steroid injections can be advised. An epidural steroid injection places this powerful anti-inflammatory medication directly around the spinal nerves.
