i have had severe sciatica several times but this time it is not affecting my leg. The pain is radiating across back and right of lower back with pain radiating down buttocks, into hips, groin and stomach. I can barely walk with the pain,especially after sitting down or lying in bed is a complete nightmare. Exercises are mentioned for sciatica but there is no way i could exercise as too much pain. Burning deep ache and also shooting pains in certain positions which feel tight like something will snap. Had MRI in past which showed herniated disc pressing on sciatic nerve. My question really is can you have sciatic pain without it affecting the leg? Or could this be something completely different? Doc gave me diclofenac but scared to take them as too many bad side effects and risks.
