Doctor :   Hi Thank you for posting your query on ATD. I have gone through your query and understand your concern. I have chron ic disc prolapse with radiating pain in both lower limbs. It may be due to radiation to both lower limbs. It can be confirmed by MRI of the lumbar spine. Glucosamine and Mecobalamin are helpful in recovery. Analgesics such as Ibuprofen is helpful in pain relief. Hope your query get answered. Wishing you a good health.
