I just joined this forum. I'm now acknowledging that I have sciatica, and I have some questions.
I have pain going down my right arm, and soreness and stiffness on the right side of my neck, ad right shoulder. I know that this is due to my spine in my neck curving the opposite direction it's supposed to. I start chiropractic care next week, and I'm going to see a Pain Management Specialist, as usually, anything I do will aggravate all of my symptoms. Is it possible to have sciatica in the arm? Is there anything, aside from ice, massages, and the Denneroll treatment that the chiropractor is going to put me on, for relif? I also have some numbing going on, as I can't feel anything that touches the right side of my neck, and top part of my right shoulder.
I also have sciatica down my right leg. This is what I think, is pretty severe. There is NOTHING that relieves the pain. Ice, heat, walking, sciatica stretches, etc. I've tried to do anything that I can think of, and I'm always hurting. It is the WORST at night time. I can't fall asleep ever, without the aid of something else due to the pain and discomfort. Walking, running, sitting, dancing, and moving in general causes me pain and discomfort. Does anyone here have any recommendations on how to get some relief?
