i have suffered on and off with back pain for many years. The current episode started in September last year and has been sore since then. The pain is in my hip area and also down the front of my legs. i exercise regularly including playing Ice Hockey for 1 1/2 hours a week but the pain makes me drag my feet and stops me from exercising more. i love hockey so much I am not giving it up.
i had a docs appointment recently to ask about this and other things but my doctor shrugged her shoulders and said it was sciatica and she suffered too....not the response I wanted. After pushing she put me forward for physio but the waiting list is long.
i have had a look and the websites say Sciatica is down the back of lesg where mine is down the front. Previously i managed to get relief from manipulation but after several attempts this time I still have the pain.
Can anyone help me please?
