My leg pain mimics sciatica, but sciatica treatments don't work for me. An epsom salt bath soak may help, or a heating pad on the lower back (where the sciatic nerve exits from the spinal cord).

Also I have found homeopathic Causticum helpful if I take it when I first start feeling the pain.

Mine was so bad a few weeks ago, I could not walk. Since I am a single mom, this is not an option for me. My baby was crying in his crib and I was crying in the living room. stuck. My brother came over and helped me/us down the stairs (I live on the 3rd floor) and to the chiropractor. I felt better walking out, but went back later that day for another adjustment, then again the next day and day after. I was absolutely fine for 4 days then it came back a little. Back to the chiro, and it has not returned since.

It has been the most excruciating pain I have ever experienced in my life.

Yep, that 'ts it alright.. chiro doesn't fix sciatica.

It was nother reason I got on the prednisone, way not recommended but it got rid of it.
now I am lowering my prednisone and bamm here it is.

I am off my big 8 day run of minor dose of doxcyc for the past 7 days trying to recooperate enought to drive myself
to Arizona to treatment center.

so is the sciatica a lyme thing or is it low adrenal? It's like a pinched nerve in the bottom of spine that sets all this phantm
leg pain . Is it a b vitamine defficiensy? what sets it off?
