My name is Trisha. I guess this all started a few months ago, the really bad pain. Before then it just use to be a "Hit" moving a certain way and would get stuck for second or so. And would only happen like once every few months. When I had my five year old my epidural hit a nerve. I feel that pain alot now and have a bad burning pain in my back my butt and i feel weak lately when getting up from sitting in a chair. Like if i have aged ten years in just this one. At night is horrible no matter what way i lay. As i sit here i am burning in my middle low back. At one point before christmas i could barely get out of car and walk up driveway (inclined). I remember getting a pain straight to my foot one time as i drove. For some reason driving just dont geel good on my back. Wondering if there is anything to put in my seat for this. If you ask why i havent been to dr its cause i have no health insurance. And im gettinh desperate here.. Tired of this pain. My grandmother had chronic sciatica. Is it hereditary? Im 35 with four children. Good health I think. RA is a maybe.. Ive always had weak joints. My dad has RA. But thats been my whole life that i have always had some sort of ache in joints.
