Well, I went to the doctor and he kind of had an odd attitude. He was sort of like...well, even if the sciatica is being caused by a disc problem there is really nothing you can do except take Advil until it heals.
I explained how I can not tolerate it when it is day after day of excruciating pain. He said there is not really much you can do for it. I have had this doctor as my primary HMO doctor for 5 years and he only has seen me at the most 4 times. It is not like I am this chronic complainer yet he made me feel like I was over exaggerating.
The good news is, is he said he would order me an MRI. So I am going Wednesday. Here is my question. The last 2 weeks before I went to the doctors I was in a lot of pain. By today it is not so bad. When I go Wednesday will it show what is causing the nerve to be compressed? I am wondering with the certain disk conditions if they always show. Thanks
