I have just been diagnosed with sciatic nerve pain. It was so bad I had to go to the ER. I already have trouble walking and this hurts so bad I generally can't sleep until I just pass out from exhaustion. I don't know what to do


  • hello, looneytoons!

    were you given this diagnosis at the er or by your physician?  i'm so sorry.  i know the pain of sciatica all too well.  i can relate to passing out from exhaustion...

    it sounds like it is time for you to consider getting involved with a pain management practice, as it is so unhealthy for you physically and mentally to be at these high pain levels for such prolonged periods.  i had to start with my primary care doctor, who then referred me to a pain management clinic.  it's time to get these pain levels under control!!!

    I had severe sciatica as well. Have you had an MRI to find out the cause? Can your doctor prescribe pain meds?
