Is there a better way to phrase

I don't have any other options besides going there.

And can we use words like restrain,constrained or something like them?

And if yes, then how?

There are lots of alternatives, but here are some:

  • I don't have any option other than going there.
  • My only option is to go there.
  • I've got to go, there are no other options.

"Restrained" and "constrained" don't mean the same thing - 'restrain' means to prevent from doing something, so that wouldn't really fit your context where you must do something. 'Constrain' means to limit something, so you could say:

  • My options are constrained, I must go.
  • Today I found one that can be used here as well: there was nothing for it but to go there. Well there is a slight connotation of unpleasantness in "going there". May 13, 2021 at 17:47
