Past one year i had little numbness in my left knee area where i kept a side and not considered as big issue. Before that i had back pain, time to time and got rid of it by local treatments. But in December 2017 i got severe back pain and got admited, there with MRI scan it's revealed that i have herniated L5 S1 and L4 s1andbulging disc. Now i'm suffering some type of sciatica pain down my both buttoks. So neuro surgeon ask me to go for surgery but where as refused and discharged from hospital without doing it on 15 Jan. Thereafter i started doing Ayuruvedic treatement and i got rid of severe pain. But i still have got severe pain in buttoks and little pain in lower lowest back area.  But when i put my lumber support belt and i wear my jeans with tightly, i wont get pain except very little. However at the evening when i release all tighting things i get pain like hell.

My question are follows:

1.Ayuruvedic doctor met for six times and Dr said you will fully recover by treatment what i'm doing now

2.Will it be possible

3. With having these issue/ severe pain at evening as i said i'm managing my day to day home as well office works, is it going to be dangerous in future? since pain mean something wrong

4. I do not like to do a surgery since few known to me are in paralised condition

5. If i continue with this What are the repercusion ?

    I too have sciatica caused through disintegrating discs but not given a name for it or any treatment.

    I have worn lumber support belts and tight waisted leggings but found that after releasing them my pain is worse.  I have stopped doing that and find for me it is better for my body to move itself in a way that is suitable.

    Not moving or being made to move incorrectly makes it worse.

    I have learned which things make it worse and try to avoid them and simple easy moving around is the best way of coping.

    Some people I know have had steroid injections and despite it being only temporary they have had relief from pain for considerable time afterwards. 

    Unfortunately, those I know that have had operations have not had a good outcome.

    I have refused physiotherapy as I was given exercises that made it worse or didn't help at all.

    I have not heard of AYURUVEDIC.

    M GP told me there was nothing that can be done for me and refused an MRI scan and steroid injection as NHS advice is not to do that anymore.

    Some are still having it done others are not been given the chance.

      Hi diane53336,

      Thanks for your valuable thoughts...you're 100% correct, till it too tighter I won't feel any discomfort. But soon after slacking I get severe pain. But Ayuruvedic treatments are better and I can recommend since no side effects at all and there are plenty of them cured for permanent. But you have to have correct person... by the way it take little time. And also with our busy life style we need a little sacrifice for it.

      Don't loss your heart, my wishes are with you! get well soon!!!

    Have you had any trigger point massage? It's a specific focus massage that targets the interior muscles. I've gotten huge relief  for my sciatica, leg pain, mobility, and muscle cramping from having this twice a week. We work a different area each time. I can't tell you how much it's helped me. Maybe it will help you.

      Hi Cour89,

      Thanks for your input. Actually at the moment I'm doing same as you mentioned. Ayuruvedic treatments comes with combination of many which includes trigger point massaging and oil treatments plus few more.

      Best wishes for healthy and very active life.

      Thanks!!

    I had L5 S1 prolapsed disc in Octoberlast year. I didn’t need op but was off work 7 wks and on crutches 10 wks. I recovered with rest but ensured I walked round every 30 mins and gradually built up walking time . Also did cobra exercise stretch which helped push disc back. Don’t do any exercises though without instruction from physio. Are you seeing a physio?
