I've been suffering with lower back pain for the last few weeks - compression around my sacrum - making forward bending almost impossible, despite numerous Chiropratic appointments and pain medication from GP (including Diazepam) the pain has increased now to include shooting pains along the back of my right leg into my calf and foot causing numbness and tingling sensation. I expect Sciatic Nerve compression caused by herniated disc. It is difficult to find a comfortable position to maintain, I cannot drive as sitting is not possible, and sleeping has been very challenging. I am waiting for a snan appointment. In the meantime is there any advise that members can give with regards to provide any relief. I'm self employed, fit, active and healthy otherwise and I'm struggling with this period of inactivity and pain.
