Well sciatica is quite an irritating and frustrating thing to have.

You will need pain relief that helps reduce nerve pain sensitivity. These include pregabalin, gabapentin, duloxetine, amitriptyline etc.

OTC pain relief like tylenol , ibuprofen or naproxen should be used first and if it fails then add the aforementioned drugs.

Physiotherapy should be tried too.

Alternative therapies include accupuncture and biofeedback.

Hope it helped.

Let me know if you need any further help.

Plz do remember to reward credit by leaving a positive rating to my work.

I wish you a healthy life.

Stay blessed.

Regards

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
