Hi. Are you available to chat? I am a board certified neurologist in the U.S.
yes - hello
I am sorry to hear about your back discomfort.
What type of specialists have you seen?
No specialists - just 3 GPs
I see. Well you have a couple options.
For this type of pain, I would consider having you see an orthopedic doctor first, if you want a more specialized look at your problem.
They may be more able to provide medications that would be helpful to you.
Have you tried different prescription medications?
No, I am only told not to worry about it - but I know there must be something to help with the pain.
Yes there certainly are various antiinflammatories and even medications in other classes that can be helpful to keep you more comfortable.
It helps a lot to know what type of doctor to go to....thank you.
I suggest seeing an orthopedic first, and if that doesn't get you the relief you need, perhaps a pain management specialist.
Thank you so much.....at least I know who to see for help.
