Can endo damage sciatic nerve?
I have sciatica that is always severe around my period. Had all the regular tests for sciatica without any relief. Had a D&C last year. After pap yesterday, it showed endo cells. Will have another transvaginal ultrasound and then possibly a biopsy. I talked with my gyno. about endo and she said it could be the cause of my sciatica, but it would not damage the nerve. She is really not wanting to do anything because I am 52 and should be close to menopause. My concern is that it can damage the nerve permanently. From what I have been able to glean from the internet, it is definitely a possibility. Definitely do not want to live with this the rest of my life. Anyone else have experience with this? If I went to a different doctor, should I go to a different type of doctor? Very frustrated.
