The pain goes down the outside of the leg.
Hi, it would be great to know what you have tried already? Have you tried physiotherapy, reflexology or acupuncture? These can all give you relief from your pain naturally and are all great treatments if you get someone who practices correctly. I am going to add a web address with videos of how to relieve sciatic pain, you might find it interesting http://www.backpain.com.au
I don't want to advise you on something you have already tried, so write back and let me know if you want more advice
Dehlia I did not look at the web site you gave Jolieray, but chiroproctice help is another non-medacinal approach ro sicatica, Please also indicate if you are seeking advise on what different medications will help. Too little info as Dehlia stated ro give a lot of correct info.
I had this when I was pregnant. The physiotherapist told me to sit on the ground, left leg straight, bend right leg over knee and bring it over to the left and up a bit towards your chest until you feel a pull stretching. Do it slowly and hold a little. That's it! Dont do the other side because it will undo what you did for the right. Hope this helps! It helped me.
If you have tried medications, physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, etc and not gotten relief you might try a procedure (usually done by a pain management specialist or neurologist) called RF Ablation or a Rhizotemy. This is performed in a sterile procedure room under a Fluoroscope, with twilight sleep sedation and what they do is actually burn the nerves that are causing the pain. The nerves grow back over time - anywhere from 3 - 18 months or more. When they do grow back you have the procedure repeated. I've been doing this for my sciatica pain in both legs for close to 10 years now and all my sciatica pain is gone. Best wishes to you -
I had the same issue for a year. The doctor finally did an MRI and found that I had a lumbar disc 5 was unstable and a cyst the size of a grape had grown in the epidural space and pinching nerves. This has been the cause of my pain in my right hip and down my right leg into my ankle. I have had to steroid infections which helped some but I will have to have surgery eventually. I hope this is not your issue. Push the doctor to have an MRI if physical therapy and/or chiropractic adjustments do not help.
