HELP!! IBS/constipation and sciatica
For the past week, I have been having gas, bloating and constipation. Last Friday, all of a sudden, I got a severe pain in my right hip area. I never had anything like this before, but it seemed to go slightly away after I went to the bathroom. I went to the doctor yesterday and he said I had sciatica due to compression. He said, hot/cold, advil and rest. He also said it might take SIX WEEKS to go away. This is driving me crazy because I have so much to do in the next few weeks and it won't be easy to rest.
Has anyone else had this condition and what did you do for it? Will it come back again now that I'ved had this episode once? What should I eliminate in my diet to help?
