O.K.; Iv'e had my third case of Sciatica this summer. This new "pain in the a_ _" started Tuesday after a camping trip. I couldn't bring my bike with me on the trip so even though I could barely walk I just had to bite the bullet and get on my bike today. I rode 12 mile, avoiding hills if I could. It actually felt pretty good once I warmed up. After I finished my ride I took a walk to keep my muscles from tightening up. Then I soaked in the hot tub. My next "treatment" is a good dose of Advil and bed rest for the night.
The sciatica has been a problem since the birth of my last child 5 years ago. I don't believe in Chiroprators and the Dr. hasn't had much to offer so I have suffered and self treated. It has been really a pain this summer. I was laid up for a week after spreading mulch, then from a bowling party and now I was done in by a camping trip.
So how do you think I'll feel tomorrow....do I dare wake up?:confused:
