Hi - I am Debbie, 46 and live in Devon UK.

I run a cat rescue group and work as the manager of our charity shop, raising funds for the animals we rescue.

Ihave severe sciatica, been getting worse for the last few months, so hope to find some useful info and advice here to help with dealing the pain and suchlike.

Right, off to have a nose around!


  • Hi Debbie :H ,

    Welcome to Spine Health! There are lots of wonderful people on here sharing their experiences and great info for you to examine as well. Take a look around and I am sure you will be able to find something helpful ... most of all the great friends you can make :D We all have one thing in common. PAIN. We can relate to each other and what each other is going through. That's what I like best on here!

    There are titles to threads about different aspects of sciatica or you can do a general search to lead you to forum posts. I am positive you will have no problem getting someone else afflicted with this menace to reply to you. My chronic pain issues are all in my cervical spine, so can't offer much on that malady. Just can offer you a warm welcome to our Spiney Family >:D< . Welcome Aboard >:D<
