    What pain relief methods have you tried? Search for the "blend." It's a list of things people use to alleviate pain. I had terrible sciatica and use ice packs and a TENS unit in addition to pain meds. Does your wife need a referral to see a specialist? You might even want to go back to the ER and insist on an mri.

  • Has she tried acupuncture, I actually could feel it helping on the 1st visit?  I went for acupuncture to help with foot pain caused by my back and it wasn't helping but then I did something that caused agonizing sciatic pain.  I went back to the acupuncturist and it was amazing the relief I felt.
