Hello everyone, I am a 61 year old currently experiencing what I believe is sciatic nerve pain. I have been having this now going on to 5 months now. It started out as lower back pain in December 2014 which I controlled with heat patches during the day while working. Eventually the left buttox pain that would not let go. I started chiropractic care with x-rays and adjustments. Now the pain is still there but now pain in the calf muscle and tingling I my foot. Just like everyone else, pain is there when I sit or drive but when I am working, on my feet doing construction work, I seem to be fine. With the pain not letting up , I went to local Doctor and they did ex rays and said they couldn't see anything and said next step was a MRI , prescribed Napraxon and said to get back to them on the MRI. I don't have good health coverage an feel like I am putting out a lot of money and no answers, just a lot of pain. I just don't know where to go next. I seemed to have lost all faith in local healthcare.
