Sciatica pain

AnonymousUserAAnonymousUser Posts: 49,671
I have sciatica pain that seems to be changing. Whe it was at it's worse it was painful, burining sensation and at times felt like my calf was under pressure and hard. There was nuimbness at times as well.

Now there is mostly numbess and some ocassional burining. The pain is mostly in the lower back now.

Lately it has been almost an itchy feeling. Is this a good sign that it is healing?



  • I would have to say it is by no means a bad sign. That's how mine started over a year ago and now I have no pain, only a tingling in my leg once in a while. I did the exercises that I got from my doctor and they helped a lot. If the pain is subsiding that's a good sign, but, I don't think that if the nerve is pinched it is going to heal. If you have been doing the exercises, keep doing them, At least twice a day to help keep the pain away. If you haven't seen a doctor, see one. Ron
