Hello everyone, just wondering if you have any ideas for pain relief? I currently have no insurance but saw a friend of a friend who is a PM doctor. L5/S1 was definitely his diagnosis. From buttock stabbing pain on right side,to killer lower back pain when sneezing or coughing,I can't take much more. I did a round of steroids from my friend(medrol) with little luck. I really need advice on easing pain while getting in and out of car. I can't take time off work and am really scared for my daughter if I get too much worse. I'm afraid I may not be able to work. My friend who does PM suggested an MRI if medrol didn't help but I'm also looking for some quick relief from this pain. Any advice is appreciated.
