SCIATICA PAIN L-4,L-5
I am 27 years old and having a severe sciatica pain. It was started in Feb 2010 and in earlier i though that its a muscular pain and same was diagnosed by my doctor. Later the intensity of the pain increases and on the visit to neuro-surgeon it was diagnosed as a Sciatica.
I have been on different sort of medications 3 or 4 tablets a day. But the intensity doesn't decreases. Now i am suffering with it since last 10 months. Now i am feeling the waves of pain in my right testical (i don't know its bcoz of this or not but hurts a lot) I have been to different surgeons and everyone treated me in his way with different hopes and opinions. I was very adventurous sort of guy and had never step back to any thing but now i am unable to pick my 2 years old son.
Now one of the surgeon reffered me for the injections in the spine. I don't know its feasible or not and the other surgeon suggested me a surgery. None of any of my family member has been to this sickness therefore no one is able to advise me in this respect.
I requested you to please guide me what should i do as i don't want to be like that. Life in PAKISTAN is too tough for the middle class peoples. I am afraid that if i get disable due to this, everyone step back even my own family members and no one will help me out and taken care of my son and wife.
Kindly tell me what are the chances of recovery and if there are certain reservations for the surgery do let me know so that i can make some preventative moves for my family. I am not afraid of being paralised but afraid that my family don't suffer and get dependent on others.
Please for the sake of GOD help me out....
