As of 10 weeks ago, my sciatica had progressively gotten worse, to the point that I could not sit or stand for more than a few minutes at a time. Since then, I have been using Dr. Scubiner's book, as well as some additional mindfulness meditation and affirmations. At first, I got worse, but over the past three or four weeks, my symptoms have faded dramatically. I would say I am 80-90% better and this is so encouraging! It really seems to be working! I still have some tingling, tightness, and minor aches -but it has diminished from debilitating to just a little annoying. I don't want to start celebrating yet, but I am finally confident in this approach and look forward to writing a success story in the near future. Do any of the veterans have words of wisdom for the home stretch? Has anyone else gotten mostly better, but then felt stuck?
