i have been experiencing pain off and on for years and diagnosed w/ sciatic nerve about 16 years ago. so recently the past 2 weeks I have really been in pain. it hurts to walk, i have to pivot to get in the car…it hurts constantly even laying down. i also have experienced a burning sensation in my lower left leg as well and the doctor says it may have to do with the sciatic nerve. has anyone ever experienced this?? if so how did you gain relief? did you see a doctor?
