I have had leg pain since November 2013. I also had sciatic nerve blockage too that cause the whole leg to go numb. I had surgery for the sciatic blockage and that was cured but the pain was cause by chronic bursitis I was told by the neurosurgeon that he couldn't fix. He sent me to a orthopedic dr. I got shots but never did any good. Recently I changed to a new orthopedist and wow what a difference in treatments. Since the shots didn't work he has me going for heat treatments and then deep muscle message. It's been 2 weeks and I can now go for a walk without my leg giving out because of the sever upper leg pain. It's not All better but alot better.
Yay! How wonderful to be able to go for walks again! I hope that the treatment continues to make things better.

I'm glad you found some relief! In January, I was in the hospital with sciatic pain due to bulging discs lumbar 4/5 It is being controlled by a med for nerve pain and ibuprofen Hope you continue to heal so you can be comfortable.
