I have a long history with sciatic nerve pain that usually shows up after shoveling snow. Two weeks ago I threw out my back shoveling snow. Typically I am able to heat the lower back, stretch the glutes and do some simple floor exercise and it goes away over a two week period. This time around it is not going away. The only relief I get is when I walk. After the first half mile the pain disappears and things go back to normal.
Not sure what I did to the lower back this time, but something is different as the pain is not responding to the standard measures taken in the past. Set to visit the doc next week, however I pretty much know what will be said. Any help you folks can offer I will take a look at.
