I have Parkinsons which affects the right hand side of my body. I occasionally get problems with my back and right leg. However, about a week ago I got very bad pain in my back, running down my leg into my knee. The pain was so severe it was almost unbearable. My knee was so painful that no painkillers touched the pain. It was so painful that it caused me to shout out. Like daggers in my knee.
This continued for a few days, but has eased now. I believe sciatica has similar symptoms and I would be grateful for any comments you can give me. After one bout, I expect I can look forward to more episodes. Typically, it has eased just in time for my appointment with my GP/
