    Sciatica

    I've been dealing with sciatica on a daily basis for many years. I've had numerous injections, been on muscle relaxers, hours of physical therapy, tried custom shoe inserts, chiropractors, acupuncture and several other therapies. Is getting a nerve cut, or root nerve ablation a possibility? Possibility to lower or stop the constant pain? I'm talking over 40 years. Getting around is more difficult all the time. Falling happens frequently so I rarely leave my home and I'm only 62. I'm no longer on pain meds, it's been over 5 years since I took any. I use 3 ibuprofen every 3 hours just to try to function.

    RE: Sciatica

    Have you ever been told or aware that Ibuprofen can elevate your liver enzymes? I understand everyone's bodies are different. I can't take ibuprofen so I stick to an extra strength Tylenol instead.
