Glead to hear it! I still get the odd day or two, here and there, where I have a little lower back pain, or sciatic nerve symptoms, but most days I am pretty good. I've upped the exercise levels considerably, and you know what? It doesn't seem to make anything worse. Its either better, or about the ...

Re: Encouraging news and some feedback

Interesting stuff - thanks for posting! I've been doing pretty well lately. Lots of time on the bike trainer, alternating core with strength workouts every 2 days, and stretching every day. This is about the most intense I've exercised in the last year and it feels GOOD. I was a serious cyclist and ...

Hi Doug, I replied to one of your older posts. My experience is probably pretty similar. The most consistent thing about my journey with LBP and sciatica has been the sheer inconsistency of it! My issue started a little over a year ago. Since then its been up and down. Left leg sciatica, mostly belo...

I am still optimistic about my recovery because my symptoms are relatively modest/minor. Add to that the fact that the symptoms are predominantely confined to the low back, and it seems there can't be too much nerve damage - or maybe just irritation. Exactly the same.

Hi Doug, Your situation sounds similar to mine. I gurt my back at the start of 2010 shovelling snow. The firrst 1-2 months were the worst, and I was/am making good progress, but lately things seem to have slid back a little. I have more general lower back pain, but no real restrictions on range of m...

oh! no replies. i'd be interested to see how you got on. by the sound of it you have at least partially diagnosed yourself. i do believe stress plays a big part as is proven by your holiday period. you are probably sitting down less and worrying less. western people seem to be unable to relax fully...

Sciatica Fluctuations - My Story

Hi Everyone, First of all, this site is great. Lots of positive stories, and frankly, the RYB blog and site in general seems to be an excellent and well thought out summary of sciatica and related matters. I've had this problem since Febuary. It all started after a day shovelling snow off my roof, f...
