My mother is 62yrs female.Who had foot drop and fallen from stairs just one step and then she got pain in the waist. Thinking pain is from gastritis she took some antacid but that pain started to be acute day by day.Day by day she started to fell problem in walking and that walking problems started to increase as the time passes by.Then she consulted an Othopedist who suggested immediate surgery(fusion with pedicle screw) even this doctor did not prescribe a single medicine telling that in such a situation prescribing medicine will be a sin to me.Worth to mention that before going to this orthopedist my mother visited some other doctors who prescribed almost same medicine (e.g. pregablin,omeprazol,several types of vitamin b, Baclofen tablel,aceclofenac etc).
