I have been suffering for weeks now , 8 or 9 weeks with leg pain that runs from my one side of the buttock down the back of my leg, I am told it is a pinched nerve siatica and something about the sacraliliac , I have had siatica and back pain on and off for years but never like this. My entire leg will ache very badly when I lay down. I can't roll over in bed, I can't lift my hips off the bed without severe pain down my leg and in my left butt cheek. I have been taking anti inflammatories that do not help, muscle relaxers that do not help and 2 tylenol #3 that is not enough to dumb the pain. I have much difficulty getting out of bed due to the pain in the leg,but once I am up moving around and walking as I walk delivering newspapers it feels better, but returns as soon as lay down. I am tired and cannot get a good nites rest. My entire leg aches like a very bad leg ache. I have been seeing a chiropractor and usually that helps my back problems within 3-4 sessions and this has now been 7 and it has not improved at all. I have had x rays and gong for an MRI in Oct, but I need to know if it is safe to take 3 tylenol #3?
Also how long can this pain last for before it will heal? Can siatica cause the entire back of the leg to ache badly? Any suggestions on how to treat?
