Rx for disc symptoms: These medicines sometimes help: amitriptyline gabapentin tramadol People also find PT is helpful for this sometimes. Especially spinal traction, when it is safe to do so.

Natural pain methods: Some things that help for irritated nerve pain naturally are: Magnesium malate or glycinate 1000 mg- This is a natural muscle relaxer. Work your way up to 1000 mg. If loose stool, reduce dosing. Omega fish oil- I like combinations of omega 3 and omega 7 for their anti-inflammatory effects. Up to 5000 mg. Vitamin D- If levels are low, can help with back pain. Good Luck
