Hello, I'm wondering if anyone has dealt with sciatica symptoms due to a bulging disc? It's been nearly 4 weeks and my pain has been constant . It started as lower right back pain now it's only in my leg and foot and is a awful burning numb feeling. I've tried clinical message, many chiropractor visits, P.T. (Still doing currently), I'm on many pain meds anti inflammatories and on day 3 of oral steroids with no relief! I've been doing the stretches my p.therapist suggested religiously on the hour and no bending or lifting. I think my pain has actually worsened. The last time I drove (only about a 5 minute drive) I got out and nearly vomited due to the intense fire down my leg and foot. It's taking over my life and want to know if it will heal it's self over time? My Mri is scheduled for 5 days from now. But it's so hard to take care of my two young kids and life is not fun. I'm 25 and feel 80. Any one have a similar situation? Any advice appreciated!
