Hello, everyone. I'm new here and hope to find similar stories to glean encouragement and motivation via others' stories. I'm on pain meds, but they rarely help and when they do, it's minimally. I had onset of sciatica in the summer of 2017 and Piriformis Syndrome in the fall of 2017. By January 2018, both were at a pain level of 9/10 and I could no longer sleep through the pain. Since then, I've averaged 0-2 hours of sleep a night, so being exhausted and having terrible brain fog along with the pain have caused me to become depressed, and I think of suicide every day, pretty much all the time. I know I need help, but I have no insurance. I have paid for chiropractic care, PT, massage, injections, MRI, and all meds out of pocket and am out of money. I am pretty much disabled: can't walk, sit, lie down, etc. Nothing has helped. I just started going to counseling for depression at a clinic, but I am at a dead end regarding my pain because of lack of money and insurance. Does anyone have any success stories that might help me? I have no quality of life and don't want to go on like this.
