Unhappy Sciataca

Cream9518, wondering if any my PN sufferers has a problem with sciatica. Have read on line that Neuropathy can also cause sciatica. Have been having pain in back {rear end} and stiffnes of right leg. Just the thought of seeing my neurologist with something new to add on makes me feel neurotic. Very very gloomy today!

Re: Sciataca

Hello, i think it's the other way around, that sciatica can cause neuropathy. the pinch and pressure on the sciatic nerve can affect the leg nerves.

Re: Sciataca

pomalley80 is right, sciatica is actually classed as a mononeuropathy caused by pressure on a nerve of the lumber spine.

Re: Sciataca

Had an accupuncture clinic for 8 years. The one condition that was most treatable
was sciatica. It also worked on my schnauzer......Had to do yearly one hour treatments
while holding him motionless on the floor for 15 minutes but he limped in and
bounded out. His last treatment was one day before we had to put him down
at the ripe old age of 17....very long for schauzers. The Woondog
