Hey, friends. Just wanted to check in and let y’all know that I’m dealing with some pretty severe sciatic nerve pain. It started on Saturday morning, and continues today. This pain has been like no other I’ve experienced in my life, and at it’s worst, I was sure it might drive me mad if it didn’t let up soon.
I went to the chiropractor yesterday, and it did wonders for several hours, but yesterday evening, the sun came back. It was different, and not quite as bad as it had been the two days prior, but bad enough for me to have to spend a second night on the floor on my hands and forearms, with my butt in the air, while wagging my butt side to side trying to find comfort.
it has been a miserable few days. I have no idea what caused it, but I’ve never dealt with pain like this in my life. So please give me all of your sciatica tips! I’ll try anything at this point.
I’m heading back to the chiropractor tomorrow. In the meantime, I’ve been using ibuprofen, ice packs, and a massager. And my mom and friends have sent me some exercises to try.
All that to say that I have no idea what to expect. I may be fine tomorrow, but it may be longer. Right now, I can’t even walk without pain, so working on projects is out of the question.
So I’ll be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, if you’ve dealt with sciatica, tell me what you did to get some relief!
