Re: New member (27) with ongoing sciatica. Help please.

Hi there,
You really need an mri scan to see if there is any spinal damage or other condition that could relate to your problems. Sounds like it could be a disc problem that rights itself after a while. This is good news, well, not all good obviously. but if you exercise your back and spine, pilates, yoga when u fell ok it can strenghthen your muscles which will help make u less prone to another attack.Surgery is the last resort, I had a sucessful microdiscectomy 7 yrs ago.
Hope this helps
