Sciatica Pain Finally Gone

Saturday, May 27, 2017

For the last 5 weeks I have suffered with sciatic pain. I couldn't stand, sit, walk,or sleep I cried I begged DH to shoot me.I would sleep sitting on the edge of the bed my chin on my chest. I tired everything to ease the pain nothing helped. My Dr said he couldn't do much because of my diabetes I begged for a cortisone shot to no avail. I was on heavy duty pain meds for 5 weeks they tore up my stomach. Finally I went back to my Dr and screamed at him to get me to an Orthopedic Dr pronto he got tired of me screaming so he did I finally got my shot and the next day I was a new person no pain. I just hope this lasts because I sure don't want to go through this again. I am finding a new Dr.

    I am happy to hear that you are feeling better and so sorry to hear that it took your doctor so long to respond. Glad you finally got the consult with the orthopedic doctor and the cortisone shot has helped. Steroids are quite effective when needed; although they have their side effects too.

    I'm so happy that you took control of your situation and made some demands. I can't believe how doctors have become so - well, I can't even think of a good word. I saw an Ortho for my knee last Dec. She pretty much said I had to live with it. Then I hurt my knee and couldn't even walk. She gave me a cortisone shot which didn't help. I had to ask for physical therapy. After a few sessions the therapist referred me to an orthopedic surgeon who said my meniscus was torn and my arthritis was so severe that nothing short of a new knee would do any good. I LOVE that Surgeon - and here I am 10 weeks later and finally walking my Daisy again.

    That taught me that I need to take control and let them know what I want!

    I'm glad you are feeling better. I had sciatica last spring and I can feel your pain. I was able to do acupuncture and that was the only thing that helped after many weeks. The heavy duty pain meds didn't even touch the pain for me.

    Glad that the sciatic pain is finally gone! And boy, I'd find a new Dr. too! Glad you got the ortho consult. And the cortisone helped.
