I had a microdiscectomy on Aug. 18th and still have some sciatica pain in my left leg and a little weakness in right around my ankle I also have some mild muscle spasms.
A few years ago I had to take anti anxiety pills over losing a family member that really got to me. Eventually I didn't have to take the pills anymore but since I hurt my back and had surgery Ive had to take a pill every once in a while.
This is the weird thing I noticed that when I take a half a pill that some... but not all of the sciatica pain in my left leg eases up.
Im not saying go out and get anxiety pills but I just thought this was interesting. I don't think this is just in my head.
I looked up Alprazolam on a pill website said that it acts upon your central nervous system slowing the reaction of your nerves firing. I guess this is what its doing for me. Im no Dr. but I thought this was interesting and just wondered if anyone else maybe had this experience?
