I am a newbie so please be patient with me. I have had sciatica since 2010 and a few weeks back my back spasmed and i collapsed and couldnt move i took my pain relief i normally have and it didnt touch the sides. So i went to tje drs the following day how i got in tje car ill never know!! He said it was sciatica but he couldnt examine me and have me more oramorph and diazepam i couldnt even sit or stand still or up right in his office. He was going off an MRI Scan i jad done in fwb this year showing tje L4 and L5 degenerative disk and said no op needed which was good news for me. However the symptoms im having is hip and lower back pain with bulging and burning also spasms and i get pain in my knees to me its not like sciatica. I was even admitted to hospital cause the pain was so bad i was immobile and im now off work for 4 weeks
