Sciatic Pain and Diverticulitis?

Posted , 5 users are following.

So, this morning, I had THE WORST sciatic nerve pain in my lower left back/buttock leg area!  This was by far the worst attack.  I went to the doc and got a prednisone shot.  Second one in 3 months for the same thing.  Interesingly enough, I started thinking about my current bout with yet another diverticulitis attack, and wondered if they are somehow related?  Anyone have any info about this?
