28 years old with sciatica issues, help.
im 28, with a bulging L4 disk pushing on my sciatic nerve. I have pain in my tailbone, and the left part of my buttocks is numb. I went to the ER one night to make sure I didn't badly injure something. They said the scan showed what I mentioned above. They put me on a muscle relaxer and gave me hydrocodone 5. This worked pretty well for my pain, but I got really constipated on those meds. I followed up with my primary care and he put me on prednisone and miralax, and had me stop taking the narc and muscle relaxer. I'm also on a liquid diet until my bowels clear up. I work a labor job fixing water and sewer issues for the city I live in. I'm considering getting back on narcs for the pain so I'll be able to work without so much pain, and take colace for constipation. Anyone else in the same shoes? I know my sciatica isn't as bad as others, when I'm active it doesn't hurt as bad. But sitting and resting, it starts to hurt. I already struggle with anxiety and depression, and this is only aggravating it. Any ideas on what else I could do? It'll be awhile before I can make it back to the doctor.
