I have read a lot of posts and sure enough I have a scatica nerve problem. All of the tips are great and are things I have been learning over the last month. My body is completely bent in half. I cannot straighten it up because the pain is too great. I can give this weeks if I have to, but the question I have I have not read a response to. What do you do about work? Can some of you work I can't even stand. I don't know what to do. I think it is getting worse and no one seems to understand. Everybody wants to one up me and say "oh I had that. Worked everyday, cleaned ,took care of the babies". I don't know what they have, but it is not this. I can't I just can't do anything more than get to the restroom.
