thanks in advance for any help I receive.
suffering from sciatica for about 12 weeks. It's not getting any
symptoms first appeared, I thought a bit of self-medication and gentle exercise
would do the job. But the pain got worse and I needed some stronger pain
relief. When I lost the ability to urinate - I was 'red flagged' into
A&E for suspected cauda equina. I got the all clear, the problem was
a consequence of taking tramadol I had been prescribed. I've has
sciatica before but it's never been this bad.
question is this, should I be exercising over the Christmas holidays? I
can do the McKenzie but the other stretches hurt too much. Is the advice
on keeping moving applicable to a herniated disc?
finally, and I recognise that this will be a best guess, can anyone give a
back and I doomed?
