Dr. Karthic Babu Natarajan is the certified pain management doctor from Chennai, India. He is one of the dedicated, full-time spine and pain physicians from Tam more..
Was feeling continous but not very high pain 1.5 months ago, this pain turned in to a horrible pain after 15 days. Applied ointments, gel & pain killers, which did not work at all. Ointments were rather increasing it. Consulted an orthopedic which recommended MRI test. From MRI he observed that the problem is that of slip disc c-5/6. He gave nerv pain killers & muscle pain killer & also informed that the discs will go back to it's natural place with natural immunity & there is no medicine available to shift it to it's natural position. I am having these pain killers since last one month, although pain has reduced from very high to medium intensity, but the problem is I am still not able to do my day to today activities & laying on bed most of the time.
