    Yeah, just keep the muscles warm with gentle exercise like walking so you don't stiffen up.

    Both my dad & I found sciatica to like you sit down and feel like you've sat on something like a stone (I think it's described as like a wallet in yor back pocket). We got a tightness down he leg all the way down through the back of the calf. When it was worse the foot would even tingle from it.

    Re: Lower back pain

    Hi
    i has lower back pain for years now, my MRI scan was pretty much clear so it’s all down to tension & muscle pain, so not sure my problems compare to yours, but started to do Pilates classes back in summer and have to say I got 50% improvement in my pain , I still get bad days when I do take ibuprofen or on odd occasion codeine.
    But I would definitely recommend any gentle exercise.

    Also look into getting some good shoes. Wearing shoes with bad arch support made my sciatica worse. You can go to a good shoe store and have them check your foot to see if you would benefit from an insole of some kind. For me, walking made my sciatica worse until I got the right shoes.

    Thanks Erin

    I feels like that old arcade game where heads pop outta holes and yous hit with a mallet. Then another kop oops outta a different hole.

    This is gonna be a long and hard and painful recovery but a combination of exercises and patience should works.

    I know I ain't the only one here dealing with multiple conditions so I'm sadassin on behalf of us all

    Hi Charlie,

    I had sciatic a few years ago. The pain was like hell on earth. my back would set if I sat or lay too long like Terry says.
    Anyway I'm not a doctor person but in the end I was so bad I went to physiotherapist.
    She gave me a cold pack to put on my back.
    You can use something from the freezer wrapped in a towel. I was doing wrong by putting heat on it. It's inflammation so it needs to come down.
    Although as Quinn says, hot and cold works too. It stimulates the nerves.
    Gentle walking was recommended too. x

    Re: Lower back pain

    Hi All

    I spent past 3 days watching clips on Tube. Discovered the exercises I was doing was wrong excepting one outta five. Gotta be careful. Everything yous good folk said was correct. I gonna say what I learnt off Tube

    SCIATICA is nerve pain caused by three main conditions. You gotta know your own cause to choose the correct exercises

    Mine is HERNIATED DISC what is the most common cause. It got does a d don'ts

    DO

    Stomach pushups called cobra in yoga, sets of 10 five times a day

    Standing back bends same regimen as above

    Lie on stomach with elbows and head on pillow keeping lower back arched

    Walk around

    DON'T

    Don't do yoga!

    Avoid sitting but if you have to, back of chair should be upright and roll up a towel to put in small of back

    Don't bend forward when doing any task

    AIM

    Aim to get pain to leave leg and concentrate in lower back
