Hello, I have suffered with sciatica pain in the past. Nothing like what I'm suffering with now. I'm 60 years old & have a huge bulging disc. Female. My sciatica is killing me from my left hip & buttock down my leg into my calf. My calf hurts so bad & the tight crushing pain feels like it's sucking the life out of me. I cry every single day the pain is so debilitating. No pain pills heat or cold will lesson the pain. It's been 5 months now & the pain is not letting up at all. I had a spinal block 1 week ago that worked for 1 day but that was it. My Surgeon is doing nothing to help me so I'm looking for another Surgeon that might can see me sooner than another 6 to 8 weeks. Not having much luck. I'm in a wheel chair the pain is so bad. I cannot press my foot to the floor in the slightest or the pain is so bad I just can't take it. I sleep in a fetal position but when I wake the pain is unbelievable. I bought a jacuzzi tub thinking that may help. It relaxes me but does nothing to help the pain in my hip buttock & calf. Any suggestions at all? Please I'm very depressed as this is too much for me to bare. No one understands what I'm going through as I've had 10 operations four on my spine. 3 neck fusions & one operation to relocate a nerve in my spine that didn't work. I'm told I need caged & fused & I'm scared to death that won't work either. I'm desperate for any help please. Tink
