  • Surgeon won't do anything without an MRI. I'd get someone to order you an MRI before you even go to the surgeon...save yourself some time.

    Yea, if meds aren't your thing, I'd have to think surgery is something you don't want either. Kudos in that case! Just know that the sciatic nerve is the largest/longest nerve in the body and if inflamed or impinged it can wear many disguises and show itself in many variations of symptoms and pain. I think because "sciatica" is so common these days the doctors have become desensitized and no longer jump through hoops to diagnose or show compassion. Sorry you're dealing with this.
