Is there a true specialist out there who is world renowned? I am in Seattle and pretty fed up with my treatment. I would gladly fly to another city to meet with someone who is well known for treating sciatic issues.
I have had Sciatica on and off now for 3 years and have wasted tons of money and time. Many docs of different specialties, many different physical therapists, several chiropractors, not helpful. None of my tests or imagery even shows up a problem...supposedly so I can't even explore a procedure even if I wanted to! My primary doctor who I actually trust the most since he too has a back problem tells me that surgery is only 50-50 success rate but I am willing to explore any option at this point.
My pain obviously is very real and no matter what I do to treat it I know that once I set it off I am in store for several months of pain no matter what before it clears up. No matter how careful I am and how many back exercises I do on a regular basis I can't go more than 5 months of being mostly pain free before serious sciatic issues are set off.
Thanks for your help or advice!
