For the past year I've been experiencing a lot of pain when I sit. I've always been a walker. Last year I started experiencing pain in my hips, buttox and the back of my legs. It has grows worse and worse. Stretching and walking is painful. I went to phyical theripy and it just got worse. I have trouble sleeping because of the pain. Any ideas?
One more symptom, it is easy for me to get a cramp when I work on stretches. Sometimes my arms hurt when I walk.
Thank you

  • You sound like you have sciatica, which is very painful. I suggest you go to an acupuncturist it is really brilliant for treating sciatica (and the reason I became an Oriental Medical Doctor!) To find an acupuncturist near you please log on to www.acufinder.com and type in your zip code. It may take several treatments before you see results, as you have had this problem for awhile. But you should see noticeable results after 3-4 treatments. I had acute sciatica and went to an acupuncturist and after two treatments I was completely pain free! Hope this helps and good luck to you.Doctor of Oriental Medicine
