Hi doctor,

I think I have a pinched nerve in my neck, and my left hip is tight, making it hard to walk. I am in severe pain unless I am asleep, and I am nauseated, also. I had back surgery 11 years ago. Please help.



Welcome to

I understand your concern.

I suggest you thoroughly investigate your present complaint. Less calcium in the body to the low back neural issue may give rise to similar problems. I also suggest needing a good blood workup, an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) for your pelvis, and an X-ray hip joint.

As of now, I suggest you keep icing frequently, once every two hours for 15 minutes.

Gentle massage over the butt muscles will help you relax with pain.

Do not strain too much.

Kindly get back with the relevant investigation to help you in-depth.

I hope you find it helpful.

Kind regards.
