Hello buterfly72,
Sciatica pain has got to be the most annoying pain there is, so many times pain medicine does not even work, the cortisone or steroid injections last for a short time and do help some people, they helped me for a short while, however I did get more relief from using the Lidocaine Patch my doctor ordered, along with a heating pad when I did not have the Patch on, you cannot use a heating pad when the Lidocaine Patch is on. I know how troublesome this sort of pain can be, so I do wish you the very best, and hope you have fewer painful days. Some folks have used an Ice Pack and have had some luck with that also, I guess it just depends on what works for you and some of this is trial and error. All my best to you and Good Luck. God Bless midwestma

Hi all: I have "P.M.R" or Polymyalgia Rheumatica. Basically it's a horrible & painfully crippeling form of Arthritis that affects everything (no headaches), low back, shoulders, neck, upper arms, elbows, wrists , hands , and fingers.
It was 3mos. before I could get out of bed... "IT WILL GET YOUR ATTENTION"! My Dr. refused Me any pain meds for the first year.[didn't trust me I guess!] so I bought anything and everything that said it would ease pain. He finally aggreed to trust me. One of the things that I bought & never opened was "MAGNILIFE"! It's a homeopathic remedy for "SCIATICA
PAIN RELIEF. I also bought some HP stuff from the same outfit for restless leg syndrome... that works , i've used it 3 times already. If anyone wants this
"sciatica relief" send me a mailing address & you own it. Sacosam
