I have been told I have sciatic..both legs, calves, hips, and the feet, feel as if I am walking with seering, squeezing, tight and stiff legs and feet. Get some relief from time to time by lieing down and sitting. Standing is the worst thing of all. I have to hold the weight off my feet and legs with my arms and in order to do dishes. I am having a very hard time coping with everyday chores. Emotionally I am a wreck and feel like giving up. I have had this for years..Only getting older seems to be getting worse. Am on valium for short term...10 days...then what do I do. valium is not cutting the pain as I had hoped. I have tried many meds. Side effects have been horrible.
