ive been diagnosed with sciatica in my right hip and the pain in almost unbearable. and its constant stabbing pain the whole way down from my left hip to my foot. my Dr. says he does not believe in pain pills and i do take anti depression meds. and a muscle relaxing pill. im 54 years old and this pain is actually affecting my life with my loved ones and grandchildren.
Is there anything i can do at home to ease the pain?? ive also been seen at a pain clinic and had back injections but no relief there either, and the dr. at the pain clinic refuses me pain medicine due to the fact that im on probation for 6 more months and i dont know what in Gods name to do.
