from the low back through the hip and down the leg to the foot sometimes all the way to the toes?

the 2 stretches that work best for me a hand rail is used I get my heel up on the rail or saw horse and lean forward into it this stretches the back of the leg lengthening the muscle that pinches the sciatic nerve bundle in my but.

the second stretch I hook the toe over the rail or saw horse and stretch the front of the leg

the Physical Therapist that got me started on these about 17 years ago had a pair of adjustable bars for helping people walk again and such they worked as adjustable height ballette bars of sorts a folding step stool or runs on a step ladder a folding chair tail gate of of the truck runs on the scaffolding what ever you can find that works to get your leg up on and stretch the front and the back.

long drives and poor seats or having my knee out to much to the side make mine worse.

what has been best is that I have been standing at my desk for the last 8 years building the core muscles to get the weight off the disks is important for me , been 21 years since I ruptured my first disk and have 4 ruptures. felt the best over the last 8 years of standing.

Probably depends on which nerve or nerves are being pinched. Set up a plan , to do exercises that help. Strengthen your back and leg muscles. . I had back surgery, that relieved my leg problems, Mine was leg and lower back numbness. Look online or ask your doctor for advice. .Pain isn't funny. old243

My heart goes out to you. I had on/off bouts with it for about 3 yrs, then almost constant for 2. I had 3 injections in my back and that helped. Everyone is different, but I had to ID my issues. Mainly it was some worn out tractor/skid steer seats with little or no cushion increasing compression on my spine. And lifting and carrying things that I shouldn't. PAY ATTENTION TO POSTURE. Consult a physical therapist, there are alot of exercises and stretches that work well to relieve symptoms.


For by grace are you saved by faith, and not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.

Sharp stabing pain in your hip buttocks area. ? My syatic before surgery was sharp stabing pain that started in the back of my leg like I thought I'd pulled a hamstring muscle. Then the hot rod feeling in my hip. That caused pain down my right leg. Taking away my ability to walk even with a cane it was very difficult. I had a doctor that was playing games and manipiulating my medical records to show I wasn't hurt that bad. So when he would put in a referral for the mri it was denied. Then two weeks later okayed just to have the referral for the specialist to read the mri was denied. That is why I went completely down and was unable to walk or crawl and after nine month's of agony I called the ambulance one morning and the next morning I was being woke up by an anistesian explaining that I had been at the hospital for a full day and it was the next morning and I was outside of the surgery room. And that I was going into emergency surgery now. I don't trust doctors they have caused me nothing but more problems by there profiling of patients.

Thanks for the replies. Comforting knowing I’m not losing my mind. I’m doing physical therapy 3 days a week but exercising on my own 3 times a day, morning, noon and before bed. Some days it appears to help more than others. One exercise has me stretching like a “walrus”. I had no problems with this then a couple days ago I can’t do it because of my hip.

This thing is not getting sorted out as quick as I had hoped. I HAVE STUFF THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE!

Hobbie have you had an MRI to make sure you don't have any herniated disks. I had two herniated discs that had herniated then actually
Broke of chunks of disk and lodged in my nerve canal. I'll pray for you that's not the case. I wouldn't wish that upon anyone.
Get second opinions if your doctor isn't willing to refer you to get a MRI . Find one that will !!!!!!

if it is the disk you may have long term numbness I have lived with the numb in my right leg for 20 years , it can be numb as long as it isn't pain I am good.

My dad is numb in his left leg we are quite a pair.

I have had the MRI. I have an annular tear between L4 and L5, that has created a bulge. According to the Neurosurgeon it’s not extreme. He seemed confident that the course of physical therapy, restricted activity coupled with “my young spine” and early treatment will correct the issue. I do have numbness on the outside of my leg from the knee down to my toes.

It amazed me how it jumped from 1 place to another place day to day... always in my left leg but knee, ankle, shin, thigh... and probably the worst pain I've ever experienced... didn't realize the sciatic nerve is the largest and longest nerve in the whole body...

Right? And I’m wondering, “Does that mean it’s getting better or getting worse?” lol

Mine took a month, maybe 5 weeks, to stop hurting... been awhile, maybe 8-10 yrs ago... only had it once. Took strong pain meds and muscle relaxers for about 3 weeks, then it gradually got better and stopped them.
I walked probably 5 miles 2 days in a row turkey hunting and that's how mine started. I was literally crying it hurt so bad, and I've had neck and back spinal operations before... this was worse...
Good news Hobbie... you won't die... at least I didn't... but it sure messes up doing day-to-day things for awhile.

I was out of work 7 weeks with it a number of years ago. Finally came out of it and still have a small bout every now and then. When it is bothering the worst thing to do is sit.I was told to stand up or lay down.

I’ve lost track a bit but I believe I’m seven weeks in. My exercise routine is pretty rigorous so I’m hoping I can call it done by the next visit to ole sawbones.

I either need to be better by then so I can get the ok to do stuff again or the wife needs to get back to the office. lol
