Re: Sciatica

What I thought was sciatica pain my doctor now thinks is adenomyosis. I have a dull ache in my lower back that shoots down into my legs and my doctor says that sounds classic to adenomyosis and she thinks it will be gone after surgery.

Re: Sciatica

I have had sciatica that comes with my period for the past 10 years. It started with my first pregnancy. Then it got more severe after I had my tubal ligation. Now, I have debilitating lower back aches from the day I ovulate until the period stops. I realllllllllly hope a hysterectomy cures mine because my family doesn't even take it seriously anymore.

That is really good news. Another reason to know that you have made the right decision.

Re: Sciatica

The only thing that made my Sciatica go away was back surgery! Mine was caused by L5-S1 disc herniation.

Good Luck to everyone.

Hi Abagayle,
You're symptoms sounds just like mine... It's so much worse when I have my period and then the rest of the month it's that dull annoying pain.
I've read some of your other posts and it seems like we have a lot of the same concerns
I'm hoping that everything works out for all of us "sisters"!

Re: Sciatica

Sciatica pain is like a tooth decay pain that missed the tooth and landed on your hips, thighs... it is horrible.

Sometimes I can't sit down for hours and I just have to stand. It is a nightmare.

My doctor mentioned that to me, as well. I have had that pain for years and didn't attribute it to anything gynecological until I started experiencing pelvic pain in the exact same side/area my back pain originates from. I am praying my hysterectomy elliminates my pain.

That really makes you feel even more alone when no one believes you!

Re: Sciatica

I have had chronic neck and back pain for the last 5 or more years and taking a lot of Advil. Last March, I thought I was having a gallbladder attack or something and after numerous tests in the ER, it was an ulcer from taking so much Advil. After quitting, I had no more ulcer, but lots of pain, tylonol doesn't take the inflammation away. After PT, acupuncture, chiro, MRI, and now at pain management on opiates. Meanwhile, I got my once a year herniated disk in the lumbar area and this time it never went away and here comes the sciatica. I ask doctor at pain management if it was normal for my lower back to be in such excruciating pain during period. She says it shouldn't. After, having an epideral steroid shot I get got my period early(coincendently?) and it lasted 30 days till I went to gyno and got on progesterone. Ruled out uterine cancer and have 7cm fibroid with multiple others. The pelvic symptoms because of the fibroids make a lot of sense now. I have stopped bleeding and have chosen to get laproscopic hysto. I'm 47 and work at a restaurant 4 hours a day on my feet at a pretty fast pace and I'm really getting weak in the back and legs. My surgery is March 19. Nobody wants to tell me that back pain will go away, but I hope this is the solution. Being on the opiates is getting real old and challenging, I have 23 years clean and sober, and besides all this pain and annoyance, I am having to be careful of slipping into a past I never want to see again. I have a very supportive husband and group that helps, very grateful to have found this forum for more support.
