Hi all, I've had sciatica now for about 2 yrs, it's just recently got unbearable. The pain is excruciating. Doctor has given me Naproxen and codiene but it's still agony. I've tried ice and heat, various stretches (which seem to make it worse the next day) and rest, but nothing is helping. I'm waiting for a physio app, but typical NHS, god knows how long that'll be. I'm off work sick at the moment as I could barely walk, but I'm desperate to get back to normal. I just feel so depressed and low, can some of you please tell me there is hope and it will get better? It's ruining my life

I don't really know if it is related to Graves or Hyperthyroidism but I am really tired of this pain.

I also take selenium, Acetl L-Carnitine, CoQ10, Curcumin, Amla, and Magnesium Glycinate. My labs on Jan. 19 T4-3 and TSH- .01 then my eye started to hurt pressure...
