Customer Question

Hello dear Doctor, I am a 68 year old male and have a mixture of stubborn pains that some of your colleagues call: ciatica, Pirifirmil even h Even a herniated-disc. I am now in month # 8 of living with the often severe pain. A doctor in my town (la Paz, Baja California Sur) frequently injects a muscle relaxer in my ciatica area and, as the result of the injections I always will be pretty much pain-free for up to 48 hrs. After that, the pain is back -- full blast.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The pains are located in my right leg between (under) the knee to above the ankle. The other pain is in my right side butt-cheek around the ciaritica area.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Doctors generally expect a deposit of about $34 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
