hi all, only just found this site while looking for advise on pain relief... :''(
I got sciatica last year ,only because i stupidly tried to pick a big rock up and tore the right side of my back i was in agony for 9 weeks before it finally eased up.
then even more stupidly and not thinking i picked a bag of books up off the landing meaning tomove them and yes you guessed it pulled my back out again :jawdrop:
i have been like this for 4 weeks now no sign of a let up i can only describe the pain as someone has twisted barb wire around my leg from my bum to just above my knee while tightening a large corkscrew threw my calf muscle and putting a sledgehammer to my ankle
if i stand for about a half hour the pain is bleedin unbearable
so if anyone has a miracle cure be glad to hear it.
i promise never to pick anything up ever again
seriously though its one of the worse pains ever and wouldnt wish it on anyone ...hopefully it will pass but think i have weakened it after last year , been taking painkillers etc.
one person tells me to rest others say keep it moving
any advise would be appreciated .. ~X(
