Anybody ever had Sciatica?
I've had it for the last couple weeks and it is driving me crazy. I was told not to work out during these couple weeks, but I work a manual labor job and it's hard not to be doing anything physical while working.
I've been doing stretches and took some muscle relaxers for about 3 days, but it's still lingering (fucking linger, man). Anybody else have any experience with this? Any tips?
I don't personally but I know people that do.
I feel for you man. Do you eat properly? Sometimes having a really clean diet will help ease the pain because the body is functioning with good fuel.
Yes, it's happened to me a few times before. Not really anything you can do.
There's a channel the nerve runs in that protects it from the muscles, etc. Yours has rolled out of the channel. Until is rolls back in, its gonna hurt. At some point, it should correct itself, unless you've slipped a disk or something.
At least that's what I was always told.
I had an inflamed SI joint.
Horrible. Walked bad, couldnt sit, driving hurt, sports hurt. I couldnt find relief and eventually had injections for it.
Turned out to be my wallet that caused while sitting at work.
For a cheap home remedy you could also try traumeel cream or castor oil. Though I find the castor oil works best for joints.
I usually get this when I haven't worked out for a LONG time and then I start squatting and dead lifting again. The last time I had it (I'm just telling you from my experience) I found that Ibuprofen and SLDL (stiff leg dead lifts) helped me as much as anything. Now whether that was in my head or what, I don't know. I just know the pain went away. Take that for what it's worth...
Also, foam rolling, or using a tennis ball helps. Look on youtube as there are some awesome stretches as well.
