last monday, had numbing pains in my left leg and left arrse cheek, felt like someone had given me a dead leg, went to work as usual on tuesday. by the end of the day, i looked like quasimodo( poss mong spelling there), went sick to the MO, sent me home saying,well not alot, you have sciatica, dont rest to much, just keep active, your back is in spasm, so we cant really do much at the moment. given dihydrocodeine and diazapam. the tablets certainly helped with the pain and helping me sit/stand alot better.make me feel spaced out though. went back to see mo expecting to be refferred to see physio, sent me off with, 'these things take time and you can stay off work till the end of the month'. GREAT, im going out of my mind with boredom,surerly a physio would of been more use. i did look it up on nhs direct, their advice was about as much use as a chocolate tea pot. any advice would be greatly appreciated.
