My MRI shows dessicated L5S1. Had pain down till my knee at the back of my hamstring. Had the same problem in January. Got admitted in a spine rehab clinic in for two weeks doing acupuncture and massage therapy and came out 80 percent better. Got completely fine by March.
Fast forward to last week. Don't know what triggered it. Muscle spasm turned into severe back pain turned into unbearable sciatic pain down left leg. Can't bear it. Can barely go to the restroom. Taking hifenac makes it better for 30 mins. Taking it twice a day mornin evening to go to the restroom.
I am sad and frustrated at this recurrence. My wife can't stop crying cause she went through hell Jan to March.
Should i go back to rehab? Anything else i can do for pain? Ice heat not helping
