    I spoke of my new 'sciatica" pain in my intro. This has been going on 5 months. It is mostly at night so that watching TV with my husband has become painful. I take sleep meds and am otherwise up most of the night. Laying down is the worst! Besides the trauma we are all experiencing with the pandemic, my daughter had to deliver her daughter through a caesarian in April. My daughter was preeclampsic. They saved both of their lives. Our granddaughter was 1 pound 7 ounces at delivery and spent 106 days in the NICU. My daughter and her husband cared for her daily though they weren't allowed to be there at the same time because of the pandemic. We of course we're not allowed to see her at all. My daughter took time to video chat with me so I could see her. She is now home and thriving at 10.5 pounds. I live close and go to help daily. I go nowhere else and all good and meds are delivered. I am sure all of this is part of my trauma. I just want desperately to be out of pain (rarely feel it while caring for her) My daughter is experiencing her own PTSD but is a fabulous mother. Her husband also loves and cares for the baby. We are very fortunate and yet I feel pain intensely nightly. Oh I forgot, I finally accepted taking gabapentin which I don't want to do but it seems to help a bit and as I said I desperate. I have had an x-ray (no neuroblasts so cancer somewhat ruled out and I have an MRI scheduled in December. Pain doc wants to give me a steroid shot) I guess I should mention that my son is going to Rome for a year as part of a university program. It looks like a go ahead in spite of pandemic with many safety features in place.

    Introduction:
    I used unlearn your pain successfully for post surgery pain after breast cancer. Now I have sciatica which is keeping me up at night. I have had medical xrays and been prescribed PT and pain management by my doctor. I suspect this is TMS from everything I have read. I use the curable app but am getting worse.
    Diagnoses:
    "irritated nerve" or sciatica
