- herniated disc sciatica?I have a possible herniated disc and just had the x-rays and MRI today. My orthopaedic Surgeon said I would feel 18 again with this but I am still in constant pain, trying to carry on with normal activities, including driving, walking without a limp,working, cooking and sleeping without tossing and turning and waking my husband. Can I have a glass of wine to help or a Valium to sleep while completing this pack?
