As I'm sure I've mentioned before, I hurt by back a year and a half ago and have had sciatica down my right leg every since. I guess what I'm looking for advice on what to do. I've had a relapse. The pain in my back, hip and leg have gotten worse, but not as bad as it was in the beginning. Last year I had shots in my back but never went any further with the back doctor. I don't know if I should give it another try or not. I'm afraid of surgery, I've know too many people that are worse off afterwards. Should I try a chiropractor? I take oxycotin for the pain, but the dose I'm on isn't doing much good right now. Anybody with any experience in this area?
