My bum

Sciatica. My left bum cheek says ow. I had sciatica when I was pregnant, but then I got to have a baby at the end of it. I don't get anything out of it this time. Not worth it at all. I was going to post a picture of my sciatic nerve, but I couldn't get enough skin ripped off before bedtime.

You must have caught my sciatica, only mines in my right cheek. I still can't sit for more than about 2 minutes at a time. I'll rub your bum if you rub mine.

That's what happened to you? Yours must be waaaaaaaaaaay worse than mine! I'll try not to complain so much.

I'm not totally sure that's what happened to me this time but that's my hunch because the pain started out the same way it did when I fell while pregnant with Ricardo last winter, and they told me it was my sciatic nerve back then. This time nobody told me anything, except they couldn't help me. Blah.

If you can find a good witch doctor, grab a bottle of Sciataplex. I used it for my sciatica several years ago and it had the pain gone in just a few days.

My mom suffered with it for years. You have my pity. No wich doctors helped, either. Eventually it just went away. I think. Actually, I should ask her...

Mine isn't really all that bad, so you don't have to give me too much sympathy. (Although I appreciate it very much!)

what is it? it sounds deadly, foreign, or at least annoying. does it make you dance?

Heather, you found comments! Good job.

Here's something about sciatica.

Sciatica is a symptom of a problem at some point along the sciatic nerve rather than an ailment in and of itself. A herniated disc in the back, spinal stenosis and piriformis syndrome are medical disorders that can cause sciatica. Individuals who have sciatica are often crippled by it, and are driven to seek relief from conventional medical treatment, alternative therapies, and "miracle" cures.

I'm completely not crippled by it. Not at all.

I'm looking for a miracle cure if anyone knows of one. That or a chainsaw to remove my right buttock and leg.
