    The cold definitely isn't helping it!
    Just rang work and they've been OK about it but, I feel really bad being off again.

    Sciatica is a nerve in you back (i think) that gives you backache and makes the pan travel down your leg. I have been getting pain in my lower back, right bum cheek, thigh and calf and even in my ankle and foot. When the nerve gets aggravated it causes this. The pain I have been getting feels a bit like toothache.

    I really feel for you Emma as i had Sciatica not too long ago and i could barely walk properly for ages it took me months to get over it. I think im going to get it again ive started feeling the familar aches and pains again.
    I hope you feel better soon did your doc give you some exercises to do.

    I didn't want to be signed off but my GP was having none of it. He said I don't need complete rest but work will not be helping it.
    Funnily enough yesterday it never bothered me much at all.

    I hope it sorts itself out, it isn't nice at all. Your gp can refer you to a physio to get some exercises if it doesn't go by itself.

    I haven't had sciatica but I have momentarily trapped a nerve and got the shooting pain down my bum and leg...it hurts!, can't imagine what it must be like having it all the time. :hug: :hug: :hug:
