Had it years ago and was sent to an orthopedic surgeon.
She looked at my MRI pics and sent me to physical therapy.
After a few weeks, I was fine.
One of the exercises that helped most was laying on my back and pulling my knees to my chest and holding them there a short time.
Also pulling left knee to right part of chest and pulling right knee to left part of chest.
Richard

My wife had it bad a few years ago. Stretching and exercises to build the surrounding muscles up got her past it.

Mine hurts pretty much all the time. Stabbing pain in my but and pain in my foot. Lots of different stretches and work out your core if you're up to it is the best thing I've been told. Nothing seems to help with mine. I have heard good things about inversion table but I have acid reflux so probably not a good option. Stretching is probably the best thing. Sitting to much or moving to much both hurt mine. I feel the best after a good nights sleep which seldom happens either. Hope you find some relief!

Odd that this comes up now. I put in a full day plus last weekend getting firewood in. By Tuesday I could hardly move. Pain on the left side from the belt line almost to the knee. The worst was in the ham region. When I got to work Tuesday I could hardly get out of the car. I use a linament that heats up and avoid sitting for long periods when it flares up. I take tylenol arthritis for osteoarthritis in the left knee and that takes the edge off the sciatica but only the edge. Keep moving is all I can advise, and hope the weather doesn't stay cold and damp.

Physical therapy helped mine caused by bulging disc. Stretches as others have described still helps me. Sitting makes it worse. Keep moving.

for me it will be spinal fusion--have l4-l5 fused now but l3-l4 disc collapsed and pinching the nerves--so going for a full lumbar fusion

Try an inversion table. Dad had a real bad leg, Dr said it was from his back. Surgery was maybe 50% chance of success. He bought an inversion table and fixed it. Uncle who had sciatica pain real bad heard about the inversion table, tried it and said that it was the only thing that worked for him!

I have a bulging disk pushing on the sciatica nerve. Surgen says we could do surgery but not the best alternative for a tall large person like me. I am on a plan to see if it will correct itself.
MRI.
Started with cortisone shot.
Ice to reduce the swelling.
Mine was so bad my pain would go to a 8 or 9 if I sat in any chair for under 3 minutes. 5 is pain you cannot sit still for, 10 is screaming uncontrollably. I could only lie down to get relief or stand for short periods of time.
Chiropractor, took me several tries to find one that knew what she/he was doing.
Deep Muscle Massage Therapy.
Given the pain I was in I now really watch what I lift or how I twist.
Eliminate inflammatory foods as best you can, I see this as an emerging knowledge area.
Weight control as best you can.
When I do something to irritate it I get to the Chiropractor, donít wait, really helps.
Tylenol and or pain medicine as needed. I cannot take Advil, but if you can try that.
I have been doing much better lately. I have not had to have a second cortisone shot.
Good Luck.
Paul

I had back pain and sciatica pain so bad I'd lay awake at night thinking if that right leg was removed from the hip down I could sleep. I had every possible fix known to man including back surgery. Best fix - I stumbled onto a yoga stretch. I've been doing this 365 days a year. Soon as I awake. pull one knee tight up to my chest, hold that 20 or 25 secs, same with other knee then with both knees tight to chest, It was quite painful for the first few days but worked wonders.

Had it bad. Could not walk without a walker. Could not sleep . Surgeon's xrays indicated no fluid in L4 & 5 and small cyst in L5. Cleaned cyst and removed triangular piece of L5. Woke from surgery pain free and have remained that way since 2012.

This is interesting! I have something like that going on, hurts so bad I can't sleep, but doesn't really bother in the daytime. I go for a 2 mile walk most mornings and feel much better after doing that. Went to the Dr. last week, they did a bunch of blood tests and X-rays, didn't find anything.

I know it is work, like another job, but simple stretching is so good and I think important. Right standing would say that I might stand with my soles as far apart as my shoulder blades, more or less, and bend over forward. Don't worry about being perfect or an athlete. Allow the weight of your torso to gradually bend toward the floor. Allow your knees to bend as is comfortable and feel the release of energy from your lower back. Seems a bit like work but makes a lot of difference. This is your mission gentlemen and women, should you decide to accept it, you must stay healthy, that is our job. In this day of information there are very few excuses. My peace.

I use Ibuprofen to reduce the swelling of my herniated disks, the sciatica goes away.

Chiropractor was the only thing that helped me I was a not believer at first... It took 5/6 treatments to get relief I took 12 and have never had to go back... It still may flare up I can deal with it, it is nothing like it use to be...

I got my foot caught up on the brake pedals while getting off a tractor I fell with a leg stretched it was somewhat like a kidney stone you can not get conferrable at all...

My thought is that a good doctor would order sufficient tests to determine the cause of the pain. An MRI might be in order. I had herniated discs many years ago and suffered terrible sciatic pain. The doctor examined me and asked what I'd been doing. I said unloading landscape ties single-handed. A few tests and he said go home and rest. Eventually the discs healed and I haven't had sciatic pain since. I just don't lift ANYTHING heavy by myself anymore.

Popinjohn..... I know exactly how you feel as I suffer Sciatica nerve issues about once every 2 years for the past 15 years... Just average. The pain is beyond describing, so I won't even try. The very best remedy I have found is to find a good pain management group. They have different methods to help relieve or eliminate the nerve pain. From drugs to steroid injections. I'm with pain management at MDA HOUSTON. I've been treated for Mutipule Mylomia since 2005. I've undergone 3 bone marrow transplants..... 2005,2006, & 2014. All have caused much nerve and bne damage. Early in the year They had me consider a 4th transplant but then co-19 spoiled that. Said it was too big a chance with 0 amune system. So again. Looks for a good pain management group. They'll fix the nerve pain for you. I know from lots of experience. Wingnut

Clasp both hands behind the thigh, locking your fingers. Lift your left leg and place your right ankle on top of the left knee. Hold the position for a moment. This helps stretch the tiny piriformis muscle, which sometimes becomes inflamed and presses against the sciatic nerve, causing pain.

Hi, sciatica hits me from time to time, moreso when in bed. The best remedy for me is to be on my back and stretch my legs straight and toes as far away as I can get them. I hold my legs rigidly straight with as much muscle power as I can manage. The bit of discomfort involved rapidly becomes a relief as the sciatica pain begins to subside.

One thing Iíve noticed is that every time I get a Urinary Tract Infection, I recover and do ok until
the next bout. Antibiotics is the fix, also gets rid of the sciatica pain. Doctors donít seem to realize
that antibiotics help, so when my sciatica is acting up, and I test negative for a UTI, they wonít prescribe antibiotics.
Recurs about three times a year.
I had that European Lift procedure on my prostrate,
did not help at all.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
