I have been having sciatica pain for about 6 and a half months, I tried everything from Physio, massage, Accupuncture to try and fix it...the physio said it was the piriformis pushing on the nerve, however she never did a scan or anything. finally I succumbed to going to the Dr as I just couldnt bear it anymore I was in so much pain I would cry during the day and take voltaren Rapid25 at night and about a week before going to dr added a codeine paracetemol with calmative. The Dr has prescribed Amitryptaline 10mg a night. I have to say it is finally starting to work for the pain and instead of my ankle feeling like its broken and pain down my leg constantly its mostly a tingling now and a gain....HOWEVER....in the last maybe 4 days I have started getting sleepy during the day...like now its 4.30pm and I feel like I cant think straight and just want to go to bed. I see the Dr tomorrow with CT scan results and some blood test results...is there anything better for nerve pain because I really am not liking feeling out of it. I hate taking medication and only take thyroxin. I am concerned about medication damaging my gut lining too so was hoping to get off the rapid 25 and codeine at night.
