I was having a pretty good day. I even felt good enough to cook my hubby a full super. I was on the computer when my cooking timer went off. Went to the kitchen and at some point, while moving around between the stove and sink, I suddenly had a horrible sharp shooting pain in the left sacrum, buttock, hip, waist, and down the leg to my foot. Omg, I couldn't stand up straight for a few minutes, just learned on the counter.
Now, fifteen minutes later I can feel the shooting pain coming from the sacrum and lumbar joints. Part of it shoots upward through the left Sacral-Iliac joint and travels across the top of the iliac crest at the waistline to my side. The other part shoots down through the tailbone into the buttock, down the whole left leg and through the bottom of my foot to the toes. On top of the shooting pain, I now feel tingling in these same areas. Ive used voltaren gel but not helping.
I think something has changed in my back discs since last week. This is the 4th episode of sciatica in a week, including 2 days ago, yesterday while driving my hubby home from the hospital, and now. I moved last week and had 2 bad pinches in the T11-L3 area. It hurt for days to even rub along the spine. That was when I got the first sciatic pain.
Sitting in the recliner and its now in both buttocks, legs and feet... I think I'm going to cry it's so bad! I forgot how quickly a movement can change my pain levels. I've been skating along at a 3-4 for months. Need my ice (rice pack) & Tramadol this time, but I afraid to get up and move. 🙏🌼 😢
