Limpoa Tumor Pressing on Siatica Nerve
yes i just found out i have a limpoa tumor on my lower back and it is pressing on my sciatic nerve causing great pain at night when i sleep,i was told to lie a different way,and if it continues painful to have it remove as i have had this going on for about 8 weeks,is there any relief I can do for the pain and do I need it surgically removed
There are some medications that can quiet nerve-related pain. These may include tramadol (Ultram), some anti-seizure medications (gabapentin, pregabalin, oxcarbazepine, topiramate…) and some antidepressant medication (duloxetine, venlafaxine). You should check with a Pain Medicine specialist as to appropriate treatments that may apply to you.
