saw the chiro, been sitting in our hottub, surviving, but definitely open to other ideas. Sciatica hurts!
I see my chiro every 2-3 weeks at this point. I have sciatica in my left side, and I find that lying on one side or the other can help (sometimes on the right side, sometimes on the left, go figure.
One friend suggested doing a little yoga child pose. Evil woman. You try doing child's pose with a basketball under your belly! I am sure there is a modification that can be done, though.
I also find that when I lay down at night, it REALLY hurts, but if I just relax (very hard to do) it goes away quickly, but if I tense up, anticipating the pain, it hurts really bad, and for a while. I tell myself that this is good practice for labor - being loose, and relaxed even when I know something is going to hurt, because tensing up just makes it worse!
