Dealing with Sciatica pain

Does the MRI show nerve impingement from the discs? Are the discs in your lower back? If so, epidural steroid injections and PT might be helpful.
I speak from experience!

Thanks for your input. I do have 2 bulging discs at L4-5 and spinal stenosis but I have also had this problem before which was cured by a shot into the piriformis muscle. If this muscle becomes inflamed it will cut off the sciatic nerve which runs underneath it. Am going to try PT before I go for the epidural. Thanks for your input.
