hi i have had sciatica since May 2018 and get an MRI later this month but, i am not convinced my pain is nerve related. my pain is middle of lower back just above my buttocks and makes both buttocks very sore, the pain goes down to my right leg and ankle to the outer foot. The pain in my left leg only is buttock and mid way down my hamstring. Yes i feel very low having had such pain for so long, i am now only on naproxen and occasional co codamol, i was on 900 mg gabapentin which did not help and stopped me thinking straight so weaned off of this. my pain is sharp, burning, and stinging and never leaves me. I have been having physio since jan 2018 which is not doing much as she says if it hurts dont do it but, it all hurts and i feel i am getting tighter. I do try and push myself to hold my stretches longer but, am i depressed as i cry daily because of the pain? would antidepressants help? have antidepressants helped anyone?
