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?

I'm wondering if others have this issue. I have had sciatica for a few months now. Lately out of the blue I'll be moving about and my left butt cheek starts itching badly. Sometimes it also itches on the right and down to the knee but usually left butt and hip area. I also can feel and odd sensation in my low back as if possibly minor nerve irritation. I can't seem to find much on google about...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
