    One very old Missionary Baptist minister once told me: “You’ll know you’re there when there’s no more pain”.
    I’ve had sciatica for 35+ years now and I can definitely relate.

    The story of Androcles comes to mind.

    There have been times I’ve wondered how to get through 35 minutes…35 years would be brutal…

    And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son[a] from the Father, full of grace and truth.
    John 1:14

    I’m always amazed at how God meets us right where we are. The word well-spoken, the little gift, the kind gesture-I’ve had several recently as I’ve ended up running on empty a few times. The Incarnation always reminds me that I am loved and completely understood.

    So 11 or 12 years ago my sciatic nerve going to my left leg was inflamed. The nerve literally felt like someone had a hold of it and twisted it around a few times and also lit it on 🔥. My wife suggested her massage therapist ( I’d never been) the MT educated me on the fact the nerve can either be intramuscular, beneath or below the max glute or fitting into the sciatic notch on the back of pelvis. The nerve was inflamed ..the therapist did some fairly deep tissue massage and gently moved my leg rotating it with knee bent 90 Degrees.. in spite of having this pain for almost one year the pain subsided over the next day or so and was completely gone.

    The same thing happened a few years later with unbelievably painful plantar Fasciitis
    The podiatrist wanted to cut and reattach, I knew better, the same MT relieved the pain completely in 2 or 3 sessions… heat and deep tissue.

    That’s on the agenda when all the imaging comes back…

    Also check as this is many times overlooked:
    Over the years a calcium build up around the spinal cord
    can develop and create debilitating sciatic pain. This is often overlooked!
    Good news is they can carefully go in and remove the build up!

    Dr. Oz,

    They’ll be checking for that…
