I know exactly what your saying as I have had several episodes of Sciatica in the last 6mos with excruciating pain - unable to bend
, put on pants, shoes, cross leg, etc. In my experience, it is a mistake to
keep trying to
do what your body is screaming not to. I too, thought if I kept walking, doing chores; just staying on the move would loosen things up but ultimately, what helped the most was muscle relaxants and Rest. Total rest!
Feel better. It's a painful, miserable feeling.
