At the end of June i had an mri scan showing a prolapsed disc at l5s1 touching the s1 nerve root. I was sent to a chronic pain consultant who did a root block and epidural injection
. This did help slightly but at the same time I was given 300 my tramadol, 300 gabapentIn, 50mg nortryptiline and 50mg Diclofenac per day. After this I have had hydrotherapy, physio, acupuncture, hypnotherapy and chiropractic treatment.
