I went to my osteopath yesterday and he said he wants to refer me to a neurologist for epidural or Operation. I don't want to go along that way. I saw him every two/three weeks but since Easter the pain I had in the leg for sciatica has become burning pain. No medication is helping. I do get asleep during the night but walking makes the leg burning it more and laying down is the only relief. A lot of people who had the operation had more problems than ever and are more medicated. I feel really down that it is not going away on its own like some people told me. At the begin it was only pain and numbness in my right leg and I could get around with two of four anadin a day and some osteopath session but now I have had the burning pain for two months, coming on suddenly and walking or moving around the house o garden has become impossibile. Every few steps and then I have to lay down. Not even sitting is anymore something I can do.
