That about sums up me. I recently started feeling the sciatica on my left side buttcheek, which made me wonder if I had herniated a disc on the left side now too. That thought scares me.
I finally changed out my office chair for a sturdy wooden chair with a cushion on it. It feels better but, maybe not? I don't know. I'm fearful I'll never be through with this sciatica. That, even if I did all the physical therapy in the world, I would still be dogged by this pain.
I've already tried to call my physical therapist but they weren't open on Saturdays. I guess I'll try back on Monday.
A big problem is I'm turning 26 in about two weeks and will no longer qualify for my parents' insurance. I can't get a job in this economy (and in the field that I majored in, graphic design. It's very competitive), so I don't know how I'm going to pay the medical bills. Ugh.
I'm stressed. Does anyone have any suggestions/ words of advice?
