  1. Those are also the more severe end of the symptoms of sciatica. When I went to the docs with back pain a few years ago he asked me all of those questions: ie do you have reduced power in your legs, pins and needles/numbness, problems with bladder and bowel control and so on. I asked him why he needed to know and his reply was 'sciatica'.

    Yes, my doctor has referred me to a Consultant Osteopathic Surgeon, (not Orthopaedic), as I might have put in a previous post.
     
  3. Have you considered an osteopath?

    When I saw the doctor on Thursday, I said that I wanted to be referred to an "expert" in back injury. He said that would be the Consultant Surgeon. I did not realise that there were Osteopaths as well. This is a bit confusing, especially when I am not thinking clearing because of the pain and discomfort.
