Hi there. herniated disc
s can cause moderate to severe pain due to nerve roots impingement by the disc
matter exiting at that level. The therapeutic options for
this are NSAIDs, epidural injections of steroids, physiotherapy and surgical decompression like disc
ectomy and bone grafting. you need to consult a neurosurgeon for
evaluation. You have been prescribed drugs like flexeril, muscle relaxant, gabapentin
, anti convulsant used for
neuropathic pain, opioids, etc.
