So here is my problem.
Four years ago, I fell down at my job on my tailbone. I started having bad lower back problems, and was given workman's comp for physical therapy. What the Physical Therapist said was that my lower back muscles needed electroshock or whatever it is, to get them to strengthen. It didn't really work and this pain has consistently gotten worse. Currently, My hamstrings are so tight that if I sit with my back straight against a wall, it is impossible to get my knees to lie flat. I'm completely unable to touch my toes (and I mean bad.) When I sit in the car and I kick my foot too far too fast, it feels like I have a whiplash up my leg. My Sciatic is always giving me trouble, whether I'm standing or even sitting the wrong way for too long. I cannot sit in most restaurants as the chairs make my leg go crazy. This is all in my left leg by the way. When I do normal hamstring stretches, my foot starts to tingle and go numb. So i'm wondering if this is all coming from my injury, or is there possibly a bigger problem that I need analyzed. I haven't been to the doctor about it, as I have only recently gotten health insurance, and I could not afford big hospital bills, as I am a 23 year old student. I can't find any reliable answers anywhere, so I figured I should try here.
