Sciatica / sciatic nerve pain - omg help me
My left butt cheek/lower spine is in SERIOUS pain. If I bend at the waist, I am kind of stuck in that position for a minute while I work up the nerve to straighten out and endure the pain.
Here’s what I have already done:
- Started back up with the chiropractor
- Supplements: I’m taking my multivitamin, DHA/fish oil, turmeric, and magnesium
- Icing it every afternoon
- Wearing sneakers to walk around the house
- Hip lift stretches
- Sleeping with a pillow between my legs on the side
... it’s been 3 days of all this stuff and I don’t feel any relief except for in that little span of time after I use the ice pack. I’m in so much pain and I have a toddler who still expects full playtime with mom.
