I've had a history of back issues, with surgery to repair 2 prolapsed discs 13 years ago. I have. When pain free and had no bother with my back since.
However, the other day when lifting a case I felt my back go, since then I have had terrible sciatic pain, ranging from uncomfortable to agonising. Initially I could barely walk, the doctor came out and diagnosed sciatica and I was prescribed, naproxen, omeprazole, diazepam and tramadol, quite a combination. I was hoping that this might allow me to function normally, but my pain has gotten worse. So much so that the past couple of days I have hardly slept and been crying with the pain.
I have a physio appointment next week, in scotland now it has to be a physio that refers me for a MRI, but I was also prescribed Gabapentin, I have never taken these before but the doctor seems confident they will treat the sickening nerve pain. Does anyone have any experience of taking these for this type of pain.
