  • Has she seen her doctor since the MRI? He is the one who will decide what course of treatment is best for her.
  • Your mom needs to return to the doctor whom ordered the test and get advised on what she can do for treatment. In the meantime, you can try over the counter NSAIDs, along with heat and Ice. More than likely they will want her to get in a physical therapy program and also get the pain reduced so she can stretch the muscles. Sometimes the longer you lay down the worse and tighter the muscles will get. She could also try a massage and see if they can loosen up the muscles some. Soaking in a hot bath can help as well and or if she has access to a hot tube. Swimming is a good place as well, as you will only have 20% of your body weight. But the best treatment plan is going to come from her doctor. If the pain is unbearable you might have to consider the ER or a urgent care center.

    yes , she may be showing some relaxation upon massage but it disappear rapidly.

    please help me!
  • If your mother cannot walk, you need to get her to the hospital. If you are in the states, dial 911.

    If she cannot walk, she likely cannot get up to use the bathroom, which means this is too big for you to handle on your own.

    The doctor's office administrative staff should be able to help you navigate the medical options in your area. If she has insurance, even they can help. If not, most hospitals & doctors will work out a payment plan for you if that is your concern.

    People want to help but when you say you need help urgently, quickly, now and your mom can't walk, time to go to the emergency room.
