Re: SciaticaI had acupuncture, on the nhs, about five years ago. I thought it hadn't worked at the time, but maybe it helped. I still get probs but not so bad.
Re: SciaticaIím so sorry you have to deal with this Muddy. Back issues can be brutal !
Re: SciaticaSorry to hear about your pain Muddy....
Re: SciaticaEating anti inflammatories foods should help as well as anti inflammatory pills ( very hard on the stomach lining ) and muscle relaxers. ( muscle relaxers make you incredibly sleepy though )
Re: SciaticaJust got a call back from the Dr and he has prescribed some painkillers . Apparently the OTC stuff I had lurking in the first aid box is not strong enough ( not to mention out of date ) so can go and pick up prescription in a couple of hours .
