Sciatica

So I have had a Day pain free, to then what feels like a rug being whipped clean from under my feet and the pain starting to return. I am so angry, I am anxious and can feel my body tensing up. I have had a taster of what it's like to be normal and I don't want to go to sleep in fear of what I may wake up to. Why would I have one day..... I just don't get it. 😢

  • It must be tough. If you only knew you would be getting respite, albeit for one day, it may give you hope? Nothing worse than the daily grind with no end in sight, hope you get a good nights sleep

  • I feel your pain. I am on day 11 of my sciatic flare up and I have had two days in there where I felt comparably good (I say comparably because I haven't been able to get out of bed but those two days I could walk on my crutches) then sometimes I wake up and the pain feels worse. In my case I'm sure it's the lack of movement that is making me so back and forth but even in bed I'm doing stretches and little exercises to keep my body moving. Sciatica sucks!!! So unpredictable

  • Eza82, did you have a procedure done? What gave you that one day?

  • No idea what gave me that one day, I took my pills as normal (gabapentin 600mg(3 times daily) and Tapentadol 100mg (4 times daily). I haven't done anything out of the ordinary. Just wish it would happen again!

  • Finding relief using Tens machine. Also trying turneric tablets so will let you know how it goes.
