I am new to the site, actually just found it today. I am lucky in the sense that I don't have any surgeries or severe problems but I do have some pain. I grew up with pain due to Scoliosis however was never severe and really just needing me to stay in shape. Then about a year ago I started getting Sciatica, not sure the specific cause. I ignored it for too long thinking it would go away but in December found out it was due to a bulging disc between L-4 and L-5. I have been doing PT and Yoga and although my back pain has improved, my sciatic pain is getting much worse. It is frustrating since I love being active and sometimes have trouble motivating myself to even walk. I also work long shifts on my feet so that doesn't help much. My PT has recommended trigger point injections but I am still deciding, any advice will help. I am also trying to lose weight for my wedding and having some of the restrictions has made it difficult.
I have already learned so much on this site and everyones strength considering how much more everyone has gone though is inspiring and gives me hope that I will stop dealing with this one day.
Thank you Everyone who has participated on this site, it truly does help
