I have been dealing with sciatica pain for so many years, that I don't even remember when it started. It has been a really long time.
I was in several really bad relationships, with a lot of abuse, and just wonder if these emotional factors played a big part in all the pain I have suffered. I don't know the definitive causes of my sciatica.
I have no insurance and can't afford medical treatment from doctors. Therefore, I take nothing for my pain.
Some days are worse than others and have said I would rather be dead than to have to live in this pain forever. I am only 44 years old. I'm not young, but I am not that old either.
Most nights, I don't sleep. I use ice and heat to help me to feel better.
I can hardly walk some days, and sometimes, it's even hard to sit. Long rides in a car are out of the question.
A day without this pain would be a blessing. I would love to wake up and just have one pain-free day.
I have worked so hard all my life and yet I can't get disability, or even a medical card, because I don't have a child living in my home. I do not want the government supporting me, but I have come to the point in my young life that I don't know what else to do. I can't work.
If anyone has this same problem, I feel really bad for you. It's so hard to be in this much pain and not be able to do anything about it. - Sonja
