    Hi @Lettie35 and welcome to the community. How long have you been dealing with the sciatica? Has it been a struggle to get them acknowledged?

    Hi @Lettie35 Welcome on board, sorry to hear about your health issues.

    I have had sciatica in the past and know how painful and debilitating it can be. I went to see a chiropractor and after several painful sessions the condition started to improve and I continued treatments for a long time and touch wood have never suffered again

    I hope you feel better soon

    Hi @Lettie35 and welcome to the Community.  It's nice to meet you.  I'm sorry to hear about your health conditions and your recent diagnosis of Sciatica.  I hope you have found @janer1967's experience of it and advice to be helpful.  My husband suffers from Sciatica also at times in his back which can be very painful so realise how nasty this condition can be.  I do hope you find treatment to help you and that it gets better in time.  Quite a few of our members suffer from Fibromyalgia too and so a lot of people will know what you are going through with this as well.  

    We are all here to support you on the forum as we all have various disabilities/health conditions and know how debilitating these can be at times.  So please chat to us if you need us as there will always be someone on here to listen.  I hope you enjoy your time on the forum and find it an useful place to be.  If we can be of any help/support to you at all then please just say.  All the best.  :smile:
