    Update /Sciatica

    Following my recent mishap in the bath / shower from which I am now recovering the pain I am getting has been diagnosed as probably sciatica . My knee is swollen so treating that with ice but a least not any breaks ! Very unsteady at moment so they are supplying a frame for me discussed pain relief but not sure apart from the zapaine and volterol along with pregablin there is much more they can do . As we all know it's not straight forward with having MND as well as other issues. Trying to not feel so fed up but it's difficult as we all know too well 😔x

    So sorry to hear you've clearly had a bit of an issue in the shower! I'm still catching up after a few days break.

    Would physiotherapy help once the pain is under control? It might be worth asking. I do find my Physiotherapist helps with many of my niggles and generally keeps me moving as much as possible.

    i hope you are feeling more comfortable and less fed up soon x
    Diagnosis confirmed as atypical ALS Jan 2022 (age 46) after several years misdiagnosed.

    Symptoms began in left foot 2017. Now widespread. Powerchair user, useless left arm and clumsy right hand but generally positive!

      Did the person who gave you that diagnosis not suggest stretches you might do or suggest you contact the physiotherapist?

      My mum had sciatic nerve pain which she found hard to handle, so you have my sympathies for sure. xx

        Thanks Ellie
        Yes they have shown me a few stretches Physio is coming to help as well. The only problem as we all know ( those of us who can at the moment still move ) is the cramps we get in our body . I am sure they will think of something xx

            I suffered from it first in my mid 30s and still get twinges. Its such a painful condition. If you get a lot of cramping, that would certainly add to the discomfort. Hopefully the physio will help you get some comfort x
