Hi all. Past seven weeks I have been suffering with excruciating pain in my buttock/leg. Have been to GP around 4 times and they have deduced possible sciatica. I have been on naproxen 500mg 3x a day and 8 co-codamol a day. Went to try something different as I felt that wasn't working properly, prescribed tramadol and paracetamol and amitryptyline for evening. Found tramadol did not work as well so now back on co-codamol.
My pain is unbearable, I cry everyday with it. I can barely stand straight some days. I feel like it's getting worse not better and I just feel like it's never going to end. I have a 3month old and a 21month old that I can't look after properly, I feel like such a bad mother and have days where the pain is that bad I just want to curl in a ball somewhere dark.
Anyone else suffering and has any suggestions?
