The sciatica won't go away so I am now taking naproxen plus paracetamol and amytripline at night. I am also on the phisios waiting list. I can't think what else to do. Everything I have read on the internet says keep active keep walking (laugh laugh) I am in such pain I can't walk for more than a few hundred yards and then I have to sit down. I have also done the exercises that are recommended they hurt as well. Nothing would give greater pleasure than to be able to walk properly when I want . Wendy The good side is I am gradually getting down the steroids and both I and my rheumy think the PMR has gone.
