Severe pain, need help!

Ive dealt with sciatic pain on and off for the last 7 years, beginning during pregnancy. It usually comes and goes in what i call flare ups that usually last a few days at the most. I take celebrex daily to help with the pain. The last week has been something completely different. I can barely get out of bed and when i do its for 30 seconds to a minute and i have to lay down again. Ive been to my pcp who gave me tramadol and skelaxin, they did nothing for me. I have since been back and they gave me a toradol shot which helped a little but still not enough to keep me out of the bed. They also gave me percocet which makes me really sick so they gave me zofran to help with nausea. The percocet doesnt help either! The pain has slowly gotten worse with numbness and tingling all down my leg, i went to the ER and all they could do was give me another shot of toradol and some valium and send me home. I am missing work, I am missing my daughters school functions, baseball games, i am missing class and school assignments bc I cant get out of the freaking bed! I have an MRI scheduled (finally) for wed but id love some helpful suggestions for something that I can do to alleviate this pain before then! Its ruining my life! :(
