New Hope For Sciatica Sufferers


A BLOOD PRESSURE IN TINY PELLETS CAN HELP BACK PAIN. WE HAVE MORE WITH DR. MAX GOMEZ. Reporter: A BLOOD PRESSURE DRUG MAY ALSO BLOCK PAIN. THE TRICK IS TO GET IT JUST TO WHERE SCIATICA PAIN STARTS AND THAT IS WHERE A LITTLE PELLET COMES IN. IT WITH US A REGULAR DAY AT WORK WHEN LINDA TRIPLET STOOD UP FROM HER DESK AND FELT SOMETHING POP. THERE WERE DAYS I COULD HARDLY WALK AT ALL, GET UP, GET OUT OF BED. Reporter: THE DIAGNOSIS IS SCIATICA. SCIATICA IS WHEN YOU HAVE INFLAMMATION OF THE NERVES, THE BACK SPINAL NERVES AND YOU GET BACK PAYNE, PAIN SHOOTING DOWN TO A FOOT. Reporter: THE SCIATIC NERVE IS THE LONGEST AND LARGEST IN THE BODY. WHEN CONSERVATIVE TREATMENTS FAIL, SURGERY IS THE LAST OPTION. NOW DOCTORS AT WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY ARE STUDYING A NEW OPTION THAT GOES DIRECTLY TO THE SOURCE OF THE PAIN, A TINY PELLET INJECTED IN THE BACK NEAR THE INFLAMED NERVES, SLOWLY DISSOLVING, RELEASING KRUM DINE, A BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICATION. IT RELEASES THE TRANSMISSION OF PAIN SIGNALS FROM THE NERVE TO BRAIN. Reporter: FOR 30 DAYS AFTER THE MEDICATION WAS PUT IN LINDA ELECTRONICALLY REPORTED HER PAIN LEVELS AND HOW MANY IBUPROFEN SHE TOOK. I WENT FROM A TEN LEVEL PAIN TO A 3 OR A 4th QUARTER. Reporter: IF THE STUDY SHOWS THAT THE PELLETS WORK BETTER THAN PLACEBO IN A CLINICAL TRIAL, IT WILL GO BEFORE THE FDA FOR APPROVAL. IT IS MUCH BETTER. I AM WALKING BETTER. Reporter: THE STUDY IS CALLED DOUBLE BLIND, MEANING LINDA NOR HER DOCTORS KNOW IF SHE GOT THE REAL PELLET OR THE PLACEBO. BECAUSE IT IS RELEASED LOCALLY ALONG THE NERVE IT DOESN’T LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE AND THE SIDE EFFECTS THAT ALL OF US HAVE SEEN WITH BACK PAIN. WE KNOW IT IS A BIG DEAL IF YOU
