Patient :I have pain at the very bottom of my spine/sacrum. It is not muscular. I'm a recovering alcoholic so I'm not willing to gamble on anything that might be addictive. I'm looking for something over the counter. What about creams or tens?
Thank you for writing to us.
It seems that you have pancreatitis. Pancreatitis occurs because of Alcohol consumption as well. Here are symptoms of Pancreatitis:
Abdominal pain radiating to the back
Nausea and vomiting
High heart rate
High respiratory rate
I recommend that you talk to a Doctor to diagnose Pancreatitis. Treatment of pancreatitis is usually supportive and it involves providing fluids and providing morphine for the pain.
I hope this helps you.
