Hello ALL! First thanks for everyones support on this great site.. I know I am not YET as bad as allot of people but this BACK JOURNEY has been crazy... I would just like to ask for people advise WHAT DO THEY DO WHEN THEY REALIZE THEIR SCIATICA has gotten BETTER BUT NOT GONE??
Basically in Feb,2011-June 2011 i had mild/moderate back pain for 3-4 months.. Had MRI nurmmouers issues from L3-to S1, but nothing that stood out to 3 different doctors.BUT IHAD NO SCIATICA PAIN- sitting was horrible but walking made me feel better
I felt great from July 2011-Nov1 I felt.. I worked out "carefully" machines only and ELITICAL machine for 4 months or so.. I lost 15lbs. I felt almost normal!
Nov 2 or so --- mild to moderate lower back pain- so i told myself- "Hey relax for a few days", then after 4 days BAM Sciatica in left leg into calf, then BAM mild scaitica in right leg.. From Nov 6 - Nov 19 moderate pain when WALKING in left legs scaitics-- MORE THAN MODERATE but i could still walk.. SITTING AND SLEEPING MADE ME FEEL ALMOST PERFECT, but walking was pretty darn bam
I had another MRI which basicaly was the same as the one from 3/2011 accept 1 disc look little mroe herniated to the doc, but that disc was L3-4 which shoud not be causeing my sciatic BUT could be..
OKAY FASTWORD... Here i am Nov 21.. I can WALK NORMAL.. My back feels semi normal JUST mild left leg pain and sometime MORE if i push it. but i notice a huge difference account I am not screaming in pain... So what does everyone recommend? Continue stretching via MAKENZIE lumbar stuff? Swimming? I am afriad to touch a dumbell or a weight..
What do people do when it gets better!!
