Geoffrey Byamukama says:

So because you are Doctors, you think you will come here and keep lieing people ?

I don't know how you treat your sickness but if you ask me scietic nerve pain I will tell you that it has a cure.

The treatment that leads to its cure is taking elements that lack in your bloodstream.

Lack of sufficient Zinc in your bloods stream or diet is what causes sciatica nerve pain and other pains like paralysis or paralizing.

Take Zinc tablets 01 in morning and 01 in the evening every day and you will be okay in a long run.
