sciatica pain?

Hello. For the past year I have had lower back pain that has limited my stamina and ability to do the things I want to do. About 6 weeks ago the pain went down into my left leg. About 2 weeks ago it became excruciating. I went to the chiropractor, but his treatment made no difference at all. I went to my primary care doctor and he prescribed neurontin as his first treatment to see if that would calm the sciatic nerve. It hasn't worked yet. This is the worst pain I've ever had. I just can't stay on my feet it is so bad. I can't carry anything, even a glass of water without this severe pain in my back and leg. Has anyone had experience with this and especially with lifting being so painful. I can tell exactly the spot in my back that it is coming from. My doctor will follow up with an MRI and/or CT scan, but I would like to know what the possibilities are that others have had.

My Harriet
