Many of you answered that you have had sciatica before also and I appreciated all of you sharing your sciatica story and advice. I have another question for you -
Did anyone have leg muscles that got so tight from this that some of them actually snapped? I have some small areas in my calf that feel like little knots, I felt the area pull when I was stretching last night, but my calf is fairly numb, so it didn't hurt terribly. Now there are little knots there, about the size of a finger or thumb tip.
Also, the side of my hip is horribly painful when I walk - was hip pain worse than back pain for any of you?
I had an MRI today and an x-ray yesterday & will find out NEXT WEEK
what those showed. Meanwhile I am on Percocet, Naprosyn, and Flexaril, using muscle rubs, doing stretches, taking hot baths, and still in pain! I have not gone to a chiropractor or accupuncturist yet, but if I am not better within the next couple of weeks I will. I feel like my muscles in this leg are just wasting away.
