PIP is not about any conditions you have but how much help you need on a day to day basis.

Have you received and completed the forms yet?

Don't know about PIP but sciatica can improve with time. Have you seen any physical a therapists for advice ?

My daughter who is 44 has had sciatica for 6 months but it is improving with exercise and care. She goes to a Hydro therapy pool and is working on stregthen ing her core muscles to protect against further episodes.

I have sciatica have suffered with this for years I have radio frequency this is done in theatre by the pain clinic and you are awake through the procedure, the first time I had this done I was pain free for 2 years.

Like the others say its about how sciatica effects your daily living I know sciatica is very painful and can be debilitating
