Lower back pain

Hi. I am 27 years old and have epilepsy for 11 years now. I am on 3 types of anti convulsants. My weight constantly fluctuates due to meds. for past couple of years I have gained about 12 kgs and I start having lower back pain it wasn't constant at first but for past month nothing has worked and the pain is sharp in my lower back it goes down to my thighs. I went to a neurologist and he recommended physiotherapy, vitamins and some painkillers. I don't know exactly what it is but it's getting worse.

Any low back injury causes referred pain down thighs. It could be muscular and if so the physio can help to relieve the pain by using ultrasound, massage or stretches. Hope it works for you. X




I’m in pain all the time from my epilepsy They told me to go to a pain specialist who told me that he can give me a nerve block.
