G'day all, I'm hoping to get some advice. I've been suffering from lower back pain/sciatica for well over a month. Lately the lower back feels much better but I still have the pain on my left "cheek", running down the back of my knee to my calf. Sitting absolutely kills. I've done some research on my own and looked into piriformis syndrome. I've been doing some stretching, ice therapy and taking ibuprofen. Some times the pain is terrible.
My question are;
-am I on the right track with what I've been doing?
-I have a doctor appointment next week but he's an idiot (impossible to get another doc). Shoulkd I keep the appointment or seek out a physiotherapist?
-anything else you can suggest?
