Sciatica - Episode or Epilogue?
While coping with spinal stenosis yea these last 5 years, about 4 months ago I suddenly had the most excruciating pain in my right thigh that extended up to my waist. It was accompanied, paradoxically by a numbness that did nothing to reduce the pain. Strange, huh?
The only help came from a bag of frozen peas that I rubbed on the area every hour or less. After about 3 weeks the pain went away, by which time all print and color had been removed from the bag. However, the numbness persists to this day.
So, my question is, am I stuck with this numbness or will it eventually go away?
