Sciatica is caused by the pressure of a slipped disc on the root of the sciatic nerve which results in pain down the leg, in the buttock or thigh.
My back went out while making the bed a couple of months ago and since then I keep getting bouts of sciatica. It’s strange how nature can help you to forget how painful this condition is, I guess like delivering a baby. But painful it is, sitting, bending, driving a car, lying in bed whatever position you are in the pain is still there.
I’ve tried heat pads and muscle relaxants as well as my usual medications which seem to help a little but it still keeps popping its head up quite a lot at the moment. If you have never suffered from this sort of pain then you cannot truly know how awful it is.
I can only say that I have sympathy for anyone suffering from this quite debilitating condition and if anyone knows of any tip to help with this pain then please post it on here.
