Default Prayer needed

After a second night of no sleep and constant throbbing pain in my left leg, I type this while waiting on the doctors clinic to open to see if I can get some relief from sciatic pain. I have a Pars fracture on both sides of my L5, and according to the Dr, I have had it for quite some time, but it looks like it might have progressed to a possible herniated disc. I have an appointment with a back surgeon after the 1st of the year, but I need some relied now. I wouldn't wish this pain on my worse enemy. Any help the GS could give will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Best of luck to you. I been dealing with it for 12 years now. Only thing that helped me was pain medication through an iv. Cant get that everyday though.

Prayers sent. Try laying in the floor, butt against the couch and put your legs up in the butt of the couch with knees around a 90* angle. This was the only way I could get relief when I herniated 3 disc in my back. Slept many a nights in that position.

Prayers Up for You.. I literally feel your pain as I had Bad Sciatica 2 years ago due to jumping out of perfectly good vehicles in the Army . Bulged L4/5 Disk

Physical therapy, Meds and an Injection took it away. I now go to a Chiropractor on a monthly basis ..

So sorry you are having to deal with this crippling pain. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. I pray that you are able to find help to alleviate the constant pain from that dam sciatic nerve. It will flat ruin your day.

I feel for you and pray you find relief. After many years of pain I finally had to face the surgeon. Infusion done and relief. Slight pain now and then, especially standing for awhile. Good luck with the surgeon.

I had L5/S1 surgery in 2008. I waited 7 years to have surgery and ended up with nerve damage. I tried everything including a couple of not-FDA approved procedures because I was nervous about surgery due to my career. Now I wish I had elected to have surgery sooner. I deal with sciatica and back issues daily so I feel your pain. My only advice is find the absolute best surgeon you can.

I think you need to be seen by a qualified spinal surgeon as soon as possible. Per Google, you are 5.5 hours away from Austin, TX. I have an excellent spinal surgeon here in Austin, and I will be going under the knife in late January following the end of deer season. PM me if you want my spinal surgeon's name and contact information.

Good luck to you,

Dave

Quick update. I endured 4days of no sleep and unimagineable sciatic pain radiating down my butt and leg before i went to the ER at midnight yesterday. 3hours later the doctor gave me a steroid shot and a pain shot and some medication. Not a permanent fix but i feel 1000%better today. My advise to all you sciatic sufferers out there. Don't wait, get some medical help asap. Thanks for all the prayers and advise.
