How do I sleep with SCIATICA!
My pain is on the right side all the way down to my heal. THis all started about 2 months ago and this attack is my worse one yet. This is my 3rd attack in 15 years. The first attack was on my left side and it lasted 3 years. Last year I had a few months affecting my right side. My biggest problem is sleeping because I can't turn myself over. The pain shoots all over and I can't use my right leg to change positions. I'm a side sleeper so I have been only sleeping on my left side but after a few hours I have to shift. When I try to lay on my back my leg throbs under my knee and in the calf and I can't get to a comfortable position without pain. I do use a pillow between my legs but it doesn't help. This is making me crazy. Then trying to get out of bed is just about impossible and very frightening because it takes so long and don't know what I would do in an emergency. I have to get up 3 hours before heading out the door so I can walk sort of normal. Anyone with similar problems or any suggestions?
