Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described suggests the possibility of nerve root compression like compression of sciatic nerve.Sciatica is generally caused by the compression of lumbar nerves L4 or L5 or sacral nerves. Any compromise of the nerve space in the spinal column can lead to compression of the nerve endings.This occurs because of lumbar radiculopathy,spinal disc herniation,wear and tear, or injury or degeneration of the discs.

By nerve block your doctor means nerve root compression also called as pinched nerve.

First, you'll probably need at least a few days of bed rest while the inflammation goes away.Approximately 80% to 90% of patients with sciatica get better over time with rest.

As you are prescribed with promethazine 25mg, Percocet 5/325mg & lyrica from tomorrow, these are drug of choice.I advise you to please take it as prescribed & your pain will get subside completely in a time of few days to few weeks.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
