Hi I've had sciatica before last year and in the years leading up, but this is a whole new ball park game, its excrutiating, from my lower back, right down the whole of my right leg and including my foot all over it. It happens when I am sedantary as well as on the move.
I'm taking glucosamine but that takes a while to kick in, the pain has been daily persistent all day for the past two weeks, I have never experienced pain as intense as this and getting through whole cans of deep freeze muscle relief spray, whole tubes of ibuprofen gel, ibuprofen tablets and even dihydrocodeine these past two days as I just cannot take it, its so bad it sets my teeth on edge.
I am due to see doc about another matter on the 26th but have emailed ahead as its intollerable pain from which I can get no relief and I've said could we think about a referral to a chiropractic or would surgery be something to chew over at this stage. Not sure what else to do, I know its because of my weight, but I',m working on that, I've lost 9lb in as many days on my diet but climbing on the exercise bike is really making me nauseous with pain and walking not that much better.
Any suggestions anyone? Fiona
