I have been thinking about times when my pain has improved. I'm looking for evidence that demonstrates that my symptoms are TMS. Generally, my symptoms are present every day but they fluctuate in terms of intensity. I remember one day several years ago when I had a fever. I was in bed with the flu. I remember getting out of bed and noticed that I didn't have ANY leg symptoms, the sciatica was totally gone. Does this represent some evidence showing that the sciatica is not structural? (I've wondered if the sciatica and other symptoms are related to allergy or some sort of autoimmune process.) Do fevers typically have this sort of effect? Any thoughts on this?
