Having had chronic lower back pain for 2 1/2 years and severe sciatica for 6months , including having to take 18months off work , the last two or three days, for seemingly no apparent reason, my pain from both has been halfed at least. Im not saying i feel nothing, but i certainly feel a vast improvement. Noticeably more from the forever aching and acute pain from the back. Perhaps this is a temporary tease im experiencing, or perhaps nature has found its own natural way to finally end the bombardment of pain on my back.
As well as ddd i have three bulges in L3 L4 and L5, with the latter the suspected main cause of the sciatica due to the extent of the bulge being very pertruding off its normal lay.Im due a microdisectomy to remove that intrusion and rid myself of the chronic sciatica. Have been told by three specialists that my disc pain will prob never go even after potentilal intrusive back surgery. In essence he said 'there is no magic cure for what u have'!!
Am i getting a bit over confident with a few days pain free, or can these things suddenly get better. Having suffered for so long and so severly, perhaps this is just a brief teasing bit of restbite, so maybe joining a gymnastics class this week might be a tad over zealous!, lol.
Anyone who could shed some light on this , i would truly appreciate some perspective. thanks
