I had the worst sciatic pain for the last week. Usually, all I need to do is some stretching and Yoga and the pain goes away immediately! However, this time nothing seemed to help! 🤨The pain increased to the point I was unable to move. Yesterday I couldn’t even get up from bed!!
However, by night time, the pain decreased to 70% and today is 85% gone!!! Still painful but much more tolerable as I am able to walk and move like “normal me” ! 😁
If you ever suffer from this, I want to share what I did to help with the pain:
-First I took some CBD Gummies- Great relaxers 👌🏼I usually use them for anxiety.
- Took Advil which is an anti inflammatory
-Stayed on bed and watched “Pineapple Express” which made me laugh 😂😂😂and made me forget about the pain!!
- Feeling very relaxed, I ventured to do some “Gliding Exercises for Sciatic” - I found them in YouTube. They were very painful to do at first , but they are very, very helpful!! 👍🏼👍🏼
The more I did, the better I felt! Seriously!!
I did a series of exercises every 2 hours.
-I also used an Ice Compression for the day and for the night, I put a Bengay Patch.
Feeling so much better today 😊😊😊I am heading to the Graphic Art Workshop to finish my etching. I hope you find this helpful! 👍🏼
