My story is much like all of yours so no need to say everything. I am looking for personal advice to try and help relieve the pain caused by the sciatic nerve. I find heat doesnt help. I use ice packs, about 2-3 on the leg to ankle. I freeze my leg. I have a knee elevator wedge and back wedge. I haven't slept flat on my bed in weeks. If its really bad i sleep on my recliner with ice packs.... it feels like my Achilles tendon is EDITup... to relieve that pain i have to pull up on my toes.... the calf muscle is always cramping, the newest pain is my knee and wit the calf its a very painful restless feeling. THe back of my thigh is also affected as well as my butt and hip.... what is it you guys do to help relieve the pain???? I am on lyrica and tramadol. I am waiting on an appointment with the neuro surgeon
ANy advice would be great..... also has anyone ever tried compression stockings or shorts to try to relieve pain????
