Can anyone give me any advise,I'm a 55 year old healthy woman 2 weeks ago I woke up with the worst pain Iv ever had in my left leg,it starts at the groin and goes right the way down the front of my leg in to my foot the shin area being the most painful.i can't sit down as this makes it worse and can only stand for short periods,yet if I lay down flat it's more bearable.
my doctor says it is sciatica even thou I haven't had any X-rays she has prescribed me naproxen and gabapentin, are my symptoms typical of sciatica
And is anyone else on gabapentin as all they seen to do is make me drowsy.
any advice would be great.
