I have been suffering with Sciatica since August last year, I know that my lockdown weight gain has to be a trigger. so I am currently & successfully loosing weight (slowly but surely) First I was prescribed Naproxen for pain relief which did nothing. Then I was referred for physiotherapy - which was done by video call, which as you can imagine, was a waste of time. I had an MRI scan last week and awaiting the results. In the meantime I have been prescribed Tramadol which between the drowsy/zombie effect of the tramadol or the pain I don't know which is worse. If you have had it or have it, what helps you relieve the pain? Some days I can hardly stand or even sit. It run down the full length of my leg and also if I out my head forward it fells like I have a rubber band attached to the top of my head and pulling the full length of my leg down to my toe
