I am suffer from sciatica pain on the left side and had an Mri lying on the back, which showed some bulging disc. No clear reason has been given. Find it hard to carry on with daily routine and driving. Would anyone recommend any more tests to see what's the under lying cause?Get up 4 times a night because of pain, then I come down and start doing some walking till it eases off. I repeat the whole process after one or two hours of sleep. Take pain killers 24/7. Also siting down is an issue so any recommendations for special cushions, toilet sit/cushions and supportive gear like sits/cushions to be used while driving? It's gone on for six months or more. Mri of lumbar spine did not help. The consultants are vague. Was referred for phisio but it's not helping. Went to a pain relief clinic run by a self employed Dr, who said he can do muscle alignment without wanting to see my mri and he suggested it's due to constitutional problems and offered to sell me well Womens over 50 tablets and said it will help after 6 weeks of taking but would need a few ( 6 to 8 sessions ) with him at £50 each. I am not sure! Would really like to get to the bottom of it so I can take the right course of treatment. I don't mind going private if anyone can identify the root of the problem.
Would be most grateful for your input.
