Lower back and hip pain.

Hello Doctor, I was practicing a martial arts game, i was doing stretch exercises. It was a back leg race kick. I kicked with full stretch high, suddenly i got a pain in my nerve below my testes and upper thigh. I didn’t practiced for days. After 4 days i practiced, it pained again. I tried to withdraw pain and practice. But now i am having hip pain and whole thigh. I searched in net, and i think its sciatica nerve pain. Please guide me. what to do.

  1. Hello,
    Welcome to medimetry.
    Thanks for the query.

    I can understand your concern.

    I would recommend following for relief from Sciatica pain:
    1. SSRI like Duloxetine which provides a wonderful relief with in 4-6 weeks of therapy.
    2. Pregabalin provides relief from the very first day and is a safe way to combat pain in long term.
    3. Local application of Diclofenac gel.
    4. Tramadol in case of severe pain.
    This treatment has very good results so discuss with your doctor about this treatment option.

    I hope it helps you.
