Dealing with Sciatica pain

My sciatica was caused by a synovial cyst that pushed on the nerve. I had surgery to remove the cyst and was without pain. 6 months later I formed another cyst that also pushed on the sciatica nerve and so I had surgery a second time. That was 12 years ago and I’ve had no more problem. I think this is rare but thought I’d throw in another cause for people seeking a cause.

Hi kibwezi, Could you tell me how the cyst was found. Did it show up in an MRI? I have had burning sciatic pain for two years and a cause cannot be found.

@dmarano2000, Yes it was found with an MRI. A neurosurgeon was the one who did the surgery. The surgery was relatively easy with one overnight in the hospital and just a few days to recover. No real lifting or heavy housework like vacuuming for a while after that but back to normal soon.

Thanks for the reply. Glad you found relief. I guess my problem is different. I have had many MRIs and they didn’t show any cause for my pain.

@dmarano2000 I hope you can find out the cause and become pain free. It isn’t pleasant pain! Wish I had an answer for you.
