Ended up in the ER this morning from all the medication these doctors have me on. I have been to five doctors and physical therapy since this sciatica nerve started in January. I can't walk, can't get into the shower with out help, can't do anything but suffer. Each doctor gives me a new pill and sends me on to another doctor. The specialist they sent me to, told me to walk 45 minutes each day. Right! I can't make it to the bathroom with out help. What may I ask is he talking about!!!
The ER doctor gave me two shots of something and told me to go home and not move. My whole back side is inflamed . You can say that again!!!! My leg feels like it is on fire!!! Going to go back on Monday for an MRI. Just want this to STOP!!!! It's the pain from hell...
This is what the Internet says about Sciatica Nerve:
Pain symptoms from sciatica, usually caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve, can vary significantly from one person to the next. Usually starting in the lower back, sciatic pain can radiate through the pelvis, buttocks and down the back of the leg. Usually symptoms are only felt on one side of the body.
Depending on the source of trouble, sciatic pain may be felt in the foot or even all the way to the toes. Sciatic nerve pain intensity can range from minor to severe, causing burning or aching sensations.
Sciatica also causes tingling, numbness or weakness in the affected areas in some cases. Increased pain or numbness is common while sitting down.
