I’d like to chat with some re sciatica and the terrible upper thigh muscle pain in the back and inner portion of my thigh. What can I do until I get to a doctor? Anyone heard of taking magnesium pills – if so, how many mgs? I cannot sleep and right now I’m sitting in a straight back chair with my leg extended a bit. I get some relief sitting in a recliner but I have to strategically set myself in a certain position. Getting up and down causes terrible pain. I also have low dosage of Tizanadine, muscle relaxant which doesn’t seem to work. Maybe I’m not taking enough. Of course, my doctor isn’t in today.
