  • I had similar pain a few months ago and thought it was sciatica, went to Dr and she referred me to physio, who said it wasn't sciatica but another nerve, anyway after 3 visits to the physio it was a lot better, so maybe you should give this a try, good luck x

  • I had physio for very bad sciatica and it did help a little turns out I have Sacroiliac hip dysfunction which still causes pain in my back and a vice like grip on my pelvis. I hope you can find some relief, I am rather envious as I can't swim without hurting my back further :)

  • I am so very sorry to read that you are suffering and struggling to much, and I genuinely hope that you start to feel better soon. I have a compressed sciatic nerve so you have my full sympathy.

    Al my hopes and dreams for you


  • What you don't say is whether the doc has been involved in any of this. As cruz says it may just be worth a visit, though the painkillers may be the same.

  • hi ive had fibro for over 10yrs gp involved had every treatment going and seen endless people scans xrays etc sorrry if my post wasnt clear was just having a bad day and this was a differant pain than usual just made me feel i needed to share

  • don't apologise, we're here to listen and support. I agree it's worrying when a new slant of pain appears. Hope things are improving.
