I have been dealing with sciatica for 3 years. It never goes away. I am in pain every hour of every day.I take 5 percocets and 3 valium and lyrica everyday. Every month my DR gives me a new pill to try, but it never works.Some days i feel like i'm loosing my mind. I'm lucky if I get 3 or 4 hours of sleep a day. I have tried everything from injections to pt to traction and botox ,triger point injections , deep tissue massage, rizotomy, caudle epidurals, you name it i've had it. I use an electric stimulater every 8 hours. I've had 5 emg's and 3 mri's and my Dr keeps telling me there is nothing she can do for me! I have been denied ssi 4 times. there are days when I can't even get out of bed. I have fallen down my steps several times. If anyone has any sugestions PLEASE let me know if there is any thing else I can try. I'll try anything if it would give me some ability to function normally. I have a 4 year old that I can't even take to the park and have fun with him.. I am only 30 years old and I can't imagine what this is going to be like when I get older.
