Hello, sciatic pain problems


Just signed up as I'm suffering from sciatica pain and it just seems to be getting worse. I've just written a post in the relevant forum (http://www.spine-health.com/forum/pain/sciatica-leg-pain-radiculopathy/new-forums-sciatica-advice) but should also say hello in here :)

So, me, I'm, 44 and male, after a lot of heart problems I had a quiet few months and seem to have had a resurgence of a sciatica problem that I had 5 years ago. I haven't yet seen a GP as they were little to no help last time but now the condition seems to be getting worse and I'm unsure of what to do next.

Anyway, thank you for having me,



  • I'm guessing no mri or X-rays have been done? Which leg has the pain? Reducing the inflammation touching the nerve affected would reduce your pain. Rest, heating pads can help too. Soaking in a hot bath or hot tub feels good. These flare ups are really painful at first then will improve after resting and conservative treatments. Keep your doctor informed and do what he says, if all treatments fail then a mri will explain
