Re: SciaticaYou probably need the op I had nearly 25 years ago. Micro endoscopic discectomy (sp?) see your doctor about it.
Re: SciaticaThanks Bruce I had never heard of this.
Re: SciaticaThe only caveat I would put on that is the fact that it was over 20 years ago there might be something better now but it certainly worked for me.
Re: SciaticaHi muddy sorry to hear about your pain , I dont know if you have ever had reflexology specifically for this problem . Many years ago I suddenly got hit with this whilst walking completely out of the blue , after days of pain I went to have what I thought was either massage or physio but the lady said she was going to do reflexology . She specifically worked in the area of the ankle and the back of the ankle and up the leg and I went twice , it was uncomfortable and at times painful but it completely cured it . I have never had it since .
Re: SciaticaMuddy, i'm exactly the same, its been two weeks now of not going out, I can only stand up for 2 mins in agony and I have to sit back down again. GP was suppose to ring me yesterday but he never. I have been taking Co-Codomol tablets and Heat Lamp, but still in agony.
Re: SciaticaMuddy, I feel your pain - I had that. I tried lying on the floor and resting my legs flat against the wall for about 10 mins. That did help a bit. Hope you get some relief soon.
