I have been dealing with Sciatica, leg pain, and hip pain, all on the left side for over a year now. I am now experiencing pain when awaking in the morning. It feels like every muscle in my body is screaming pain. It almost like I have been tensed up all night and I am frozen in position. It takes about 30-45 minutes of slowing movement to rid my self of the pain. Just curious if anyone else has experienced this? It started about 3 wks ago. I do see Pain Mgmt next week and will question them about it, but was curious if any one has dealt with this kind of pain. It definetly is not normal for what I usally deal with. Thanks for any info.


  • I've been dealing with sciatica also for about 3 1/2 months. It was only in the left leg for a ling time but it now goes back and forth between the right and left. I've been doing physical therapy and dry needling. It has helped me make a little bit of progress. At the beginning of it all, I did have the same terrible morning pain that you describe. I still have more pain in the mornng than any other time of day but it's not as debilitating anymore. My therapist said it's because our bodies absorb water while we sleep and everything swells.
  • Makes sense. Did the therapist recommend any way to stop the swelling while sleeping?
