Hi how are you all. Im new to the board but not new to leg pain I got in a car accident about a year ago and got 2 herniated disks in my lower back and now im haveing severe no scratch that really severe sciated nerve pain my leg goes numb on the left side all the time. I dont know what to do ive tried deans exercised chiro physical therapy for poor people (reading how to do it with my wife online) and I think ive exausted all my options ive seen 3 doctors in the past when it was my right leg hurting and they wanted to do a lumbar lamanectomy on my l4 l5 l5 s1 with implants. What should I do ive got no insurance ive been on pain meds before and I was taking enough for a cancer paitient and it didnt gimme very much rilief. And the bitch of everything is im 21 years old and I just had a kid 9 months ago so fellow pain sufferers tell me what I should do? :?:

Hi leftlegdan,

Some people get lucky and the sciatica symptoms clear up right away. For others it can take a long time. You didn't mention how long you've been doing the exercises, so that limits any advice I can give you. I just don't know how far along you are in the program.

Hi leftlegdan

Sounds like you've got more than sciatica to deal with .... was stuff broken in the accident that needs surgical repair??

Does your state have medicaid to help you with medical expenses? If not, can you move to one, (like NC that has helped me)?

Don't lose hope cause there are still treatment for this, but you need to look for a good specialist to cure your symptoms.
