Out of the Blue

After a couple of days of seeming improvement, this sciatica from which I've been suffering flared up last night, and was really bothering me this morning. The good news is that a couple of Advil can provide complete relief. I am not planning on making a habit out of taking analgesics, however, so I'm only going to give this a few more days to clear up on its own before I take the drastic step of seeing a doctor. I'm actually probably at the point when I would do this now under normal circumstances, except we recently changed medical plans, and my old doctor does not accept our new insurance. He's also near our old house, which is not so convenient anymore, but I would make the trip if this was covered. As it stands, seeing a doctor would mean accelerating the search to find one in the first place. We're working on that, and in the meantime, I'll hold out hope this clears up on its own as it is said can often be the case. But, as I say, I'm near the end of my rope.

Physical therapy is the only thing that worked for me. My doctor gave me a set of basic stretches and after I did them every day for a week or two, I got better, and this was after I'd been essentially paralyzed from the pain. The trick is, to remember to do them even after you've recovered, because I get lazy and stop and then sooner or later the damn thing comes back again.
