weird symptoms

Postby stevend » Sun Jan 07, 2007 2:26 pm

hi, im 21 and i believe i have sciatica but im not sure. i get pain in either leg, not usually at the same time.It changes day to day from my upper buttock to my inner hip and groin area. other times it feels like my entire hip joint. I can wake up somedays and feel nothing other days are constant battles with piercing pain. I think i developed it by sleeping on a crappy old mattress for 2 years. any suggestions or comments are appreciated and im so glad i found this site. i no longer feel so alone moving around like an old man at 21

Hi Steve

Have you been examined and received a diagnosis from a medical professional, like a general practitioner MD (stay away from the alternative therapists, like chiropractors, they will make diagnosis, but the GPs are the best at it, and worth the extra money)? Costs $200 down here in NC, if you don't have some sort of med insurance. The first thing you want to do, if you haven't done so already. Takes a lot of the mystery out of what's happening.

If it is "just" sciatice, the GP probably won't do much more than recommend some pain relief meds, but at least you'll know it's not something more serious .... and you can confidently begin doing RYB at home.
