Sciatica

Posted by bustrbrwn22 @bustrbrwn22, Aug 28, 2020

Does anyone else have debilitating "sciatica" – can only walk 15 min at a time rest of time in bed? Pain from lower right back, through right hamstring, outside of both calves and burning, knife-life pain in the bottom of both feet. I have progressed to this point over a 10 year period. Tried cortisone injections, accupuncture, dry needling, physical therapy, myofascial massage, TENS, chiropractor and now looking for supplements.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Spine Health group.

I should add that it is the S1 nerve causing the problem according to MRI's. I just submitted a request for an appt to the Mayo Clinic. In desperate pain and need help.

Consider a CBD high dose like 100mg capsule or stronger.

Thank you Mr. John. Any experience with CBD for pain? Could be a good topic to see the quantity of people would help in those that it hasn’t. Also a problem side effects, especially with higher concentration Capsules like 100 MG to 300 MG per capsule.

@123zale I don't have any experience with CBD oil since I don't have any pain with my neuropathy only the numbness and CBD oil won't help numbness. There are a couple of discussions you might want to view here:

@bustrbrwn22 Good for you! My primary care sent a request for me and I got in pretty fast. I'm sorry you are in so much pain. Which Mayo are you going too? I went to the one in Rochester, MN. I had a 9 hr fusion from T-10 to my pelvis. On L-4 & 5 I had stenosis, which my surgeon also fixed. It was very painful at first,but they kept me comfortable with pain pills, but almost 3 months (on Sept. 9th) I wear a brace and my bones are soft so I have to give myself injections in my stomach every day, but the needle is so small you can hardly see it. I walk 1/4 to 1/2 mile every day in several walks, Think I will go further today. I had the most fantastic surgeon.

@bustrbrwn22 Plantar fasciitis or a stress fracture in the foot can cause a lot of pain. I have had plantatar fasciitis and done a lot of stretching of my foot and calves for this. I also got custom orthotics from a podiatrist and all of that helped. Have you considered something like that? If your foot alignment is off just a little bit, it will cause lots of other pain. This links about pelvic issues may also be of interest. https://mskneurology.com/identify-treat-lumbar-plexus-compression-syndrome-lpcs/

Yes. Saw several podiatrists and not plantar fasciitis but I still have custom orthotics. Hasn’t helped.
