Hey everyone. I have had sciatica for around 5 or 6 years. Prior this most recent flareup it has always been a thing where it would flareup at random, usually when I am laying down in bed. I would lay there and the pain would suddenly shoot down my leg until I changed positions or got out of bed. Well, about 2 weeks ago I started having severe pain in my left hip whenever I was walking around. I waited a week to see if it would go away on its own but it didn't so I went in to see my doctor. My doctor confirmed that it was my sciatica causing the pain. She prescribed Prednisone and Flexeril for me and told me to take it for a week and come back if the pain was still persisting. She also had some x-rays done but no abnormalities were found. Well, the pain is still persisting and I am going to be calling my doctor to get in again in the morning. In addition to the pain persisting, it's becoming worse. Instead of the pain staying in my hip area, it is now radiating down through my entire left leg. I am also beginning to have similar pain in my right hip but it is nowhere near as severe in my right hip as it is in my left hip. So anyway, I am just wondering, what all can a doctor do for sciatica pain when medication isn't helping? I am desperate for some relief. The pain is so severe that I often limp because of it.
