So i went to er since i experience some incontenance on my part along with all my pain 24/7. Without any xrays, mri, or catscan he tells me since my pain is above the knee he dont think its sciatica. But if i remember the video on this site correctly depending on which "L" it is depends on where you are hurting.And it can be above the knee only. So how does he gather this?? Anyway a waste of a visit. Hopefully i can get some assistance through the county to get in to see a dr and go from there.
