Excruciating ongoing sciatic pain after tweaking lower back at a gym class 5 days ago (I almost went to A&E at one point when trying to get some sleep on the first night). I have all the symptoms = pain in back through glutes, groin and all the way down my leg with tingling toes. sharp shooting pain when I walk just a few steps and now after a few days I have discomfort and pain (less of a shooting pain) at other times. Doctor has prescribed naproxen and codeine but limited affect. I've been doing some gentle stretches and I know it is early days but has anyone had similar experience / know what might help to hopefully aid recovery. Much of the advice is to try and keep active and do as normal but given the level of pain I am worried even walking may cause more damage. Any advice or similar experience much appreciated. Also, has anyone benefited from Chiropractic or Acupuncture?
