I have been taking painkillers throughout for my sciatica symptoms with three kids to take care of I feel like I can't even move around the house without takings meds for my relief. This is very very tough on me I spend all day in this hope that I might not have tobtake it today but every evening I wind up taking it. I don't know I am fueling my symptoms or what but it's been almost three months in this and I am sick of it... I believe it I do believe it I am trying my best to look into my traits. journaling everyday.. But why my hopes shattered every other day. What am I missing. I have the best support group I can ask for. I am trying to stay focused too. Then what? How to just turn the switch ON for my brain. My leg burns my butt feel.like someone stabbed me while my medicine wear off..
