Doctor :   Hi Thank you for posting your query on ATD. I have gone through your query and understand your concern. If you have burning micturition and fever. But you are likely to be having chronic backache with radiculopathy. Treatment of it is analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. Mecobalamin is helpful in nerve radiculopathy. It can be confirmed by MRI of the lumbar spine. Hope your query gt answered. Wishing you a good health.
