I have had anxiety and depression for years and about 5 years ago after experiencing my first full blown panic attack, I suffered sciatica and it lasted for a few months. I visited a physiotherapist who gave me a couple of exercises to do and they helped a lot. The physiotherapist told me that with me being a keen walker it helped cure the sciatic pain. Anyway, I have been suffering a lot of stress and anxiety for the past month and I have been feeling unwell for a few weeks. I have been feeling nauseous, sore neck, low pitched tinnitus, headaches, painful bowels and anal pain, chest pains and digestive problems and feeling very tired and run down for the past couple of weeks. However, the other day I woke up feeling a lot better and feeling back to my normal self except I think I have sciatica again. There is pain in the right part of my lower back (or to be precise) the back of my right buttock/hip and there is also pain in the side of my right thigh and calve which is driving me crazy. I am wondering if the cause of this is due to TMS or the fact I’ve been feeling very tense.
