Good morning I just started feeling laziness and weakness in my leg say before 7 months. I'm say 28 years of Age. During that period of time lot of pain made my routine life vulnerable and was not able to sleep for whole night. I took lot of medicines prescribed by doctor and later on stage I stopped myself as have fed of taking lot of medicines. I done MRI (photo attached) and there proved that I have a disc problem. After say 7 months I'm facing same problem and going through lot of pain day and night. Pain has become my life something like hell. I'm feeling that I'm not made for anything. So please read out my report of MRI And X-ray and prescribe me thing that I need to do. Thanks

Pain is a perception by the nervous system. When a painful stimulus is applied to a body part, the nerve endings of that part will send the sensation all the way to the brain where it is perceived as pain. If the pain is experienced by the legs or hands, then the sensation travels via the spinal cord to be perceived as pain. In case of people suffering from nerve problems, there could be cases of chronic pain, therefore conservative treatment measures may fail at times. In these people, though the pain source cannot be reduced, the perception can be reduced. This is exactly what a spinal cord stimulator does, it masks the signals that are reaching the brain, and thereby reduces the perception of pain.
What is it and how does it work?
Spinal cord stimulator is implanted in patients with chronic intractable neuropathic pain when other conservative or surgical treatment has failed. Trial electrode/s are placed in the outer covering (epidural space) of the spinal cord, higher than the level of pain. Correct placement of electrode is confirmed by stimulating the electrodes through an external generator and different modes/intensity of current are tried to get best pain relief. Pain message is electrical in nature and reaches pain center in brain through multiple relays. Spinal cord stimulator converts electrical energy to a different feeling called neuromodulation and usually pleasant. Upon relief of atleast 60%, the device is implanted in the body like pacemaker for heart. An external remote device allows the device to be used when it is required. It is very safe and free from sideeffects of medications as no drug is used with this device.
Benefits of using stimulator
- Useful for people with prolonged case of sciatica and chronic regional pain syndrome
- It reduces pain significantly
- Improves a person’s quality of life by reducing pain (especially back and legs) which can be debilitating
- Useful when other modalities of treatment have failed
- Useful when surgery is not possible (either no response to prior surgeries or patient’s overall health does not allow for surgery)
- Is a reversible option, the stimulator can be removed any time the patient feels it is not working
- Requires minimal surgery and can be done as an outpatient procedure
- Once trained, patients can manage the stimulator on their own
- Is not affected by devices such as cell phone, microwaves and other electronic gadgets
- Can be used on a trial basis before a patient opts for a permanent stimulator.
