Literally! I was diagnosed with sciatica caused by a herniated disc and just started physical therapy. I'm actually a physical therapist assistant student and got into this by being a patient when I broke my wrist in a bike accident. But I didn't expect to be a patient again lol. I'm feeling confident in physical therapy for my condition, but I'm frustrated because of the pain and discomfort it causes. I was on the treadmill for 9 minutes and I was in agony. I had to ice my ankle because the pain goes down that far. So my pt said lay off the exercise, which sucks because I'm trying to lose weight and prepare for the school tennis team this fall by running. I know I just need to be patient but it's frustrating when you know you can go 20 or more minutes no problem on a treadmill under normal circumstances, but the pain stops me. And my butt gets numb too! Atleast the right side. I also feel numbness down to the ankle. So anyway that's my story. I wanted to join a group where others are experiencing the same frustrations as I am.
