lower back pain for ~1yr. tried many remedies. need helpHi all
I've been suffering from lower back pain for the last 1 year. i've tried many things but doesn't seem to help. MRI is showing it's likely a disk bulge (L4/L5). I'd appreciate if someone can help as I'm in pain and quality of life has gone down.
I've studied homeopathy myself somewhat, and hopefully info below will help with prescription.
Myself: male, 38 yrs, 6ft2in, 245lbs (overweight), college educated. Generally prefer neither too hot nor too cold temperature but prefer a little cooler. I think I'm more inclined to Sulphur and Lyc. I have a history of not responding much to homeopathic remedies. even well chosen ones sometimes don't work well.
Lower back pain in the Lumbar: predominantly right sided. worse sitting. lying down flat and straight on back soothes. massage and stretching also help. warm pad and ice pack both help pain, do not notice any consistent modalities with temperature, or time of day, weather, or outdoor/indoor temperature.
Right hip pain: pain in right hip. occurs with or alternates with the lumbar pain. Hip pain is completely right sided whereas back pain is predominantly right sided but still some pain in left side. Left side hip doesn't have pain. Feel knots in right hip muscles. massaging helps, as does heat/cold packs. no modalities observed.
occasional tingling/pricking in feet (predominantly right).
Sitting is absolutely worst, especially driving. other activities don't seem to bother as much. driving 30-40 minutes quickly increases my level of pain. massaging etc. help after that, or lying down flat.
tight hamstrings. need to stretch constantly. general tendency for muscles to tighten up, but are otherwise pretty loose with good range of motion.

Like I said in my post, homeopathic remedies have less effect on me than on other members in my family. Is there a remedy to increase vitality and response to homeopathic medicine?
