Does anyone have sciatica problems. I sit so much of the day, that my butt really hurts and I have a difficult time standing/walking. x

I am unsteady when I walk and the only relief I get is when I lean over on my elbows. Recently my bursa sack in my right elbow ruptured and it got extremely infected. Had to have surgery twice to clean out all of the infection. Having a compromised immune system doesn't help in this type of situation. Does anyone know what I can do to help relieve this butt pain.

I’d also look into different seat pads you can purchase. Check with a medical equipment company where they sell walkers crutches etc they have catalogs for all kinds of stuff I have the roll pillow you hang around your chair put on your lower back that does help help me! I got that from rehab on my back they sold them right there! Hope something helps you!

Talk to your doc about a TENS unit. It's good for anything that hurts. Love it!
