I have posted this about a week ago, I have been to see the GP because it wasn,t getting any better on paracetamol and nurofen. He has confirmed it is sciatica and had a good poke around my spine etc and was pleased with the way I can raise and lower my legs. Unfortunately I still cannot walk in comfort. He has given me cocodamol and said to carry on with nurofen. I am not entirely happy with cocodamol and said so but he said see how you go on come back when they have all gone(2 weeks) and then we will think again. All the info on the internet says don't sit too much keep moving etc. but it hurts what am I supposed to do. This morning after going to the doctors fetching the prescription and doing some shopping I was done in and in pain so apart from cooking some dinner I have spent most of the rest of the day lieing down with a hot water bottle in position Thanks for listening Wendy
