Why is back/sciatica pain so weird? or I am seeing too much of my chiropractor

The one thing that my mom has given me that I will not thank her for is back problems. My back/Sciatica has been bothering me for the past 3 months............but now it is really bad. I have seen my chiropractor twice in 2 weeks. In addition to manipulation I've had the TENS and ultrasound treatments. I do feel better after yesterdays ultrasound. After work or before bed I ice for a bit too and that is helpful. So WHY do I wake up in the middle of the night (when I am sleeping 'properly' on my side with a pillow between my knees)???? I really hurt but all I can do is lay there and then it goes away and I feel almost fine when I get up later. Why? Why? Why does this happen????
I just needed to vent.


  1. The ONLY thing that has helped my sciatica is LYRICA. To me it is a miracle drug.I use it for my back,not fibromyalgia.(but I do have both)

  2. my back is just on and off, it was bad yesterday morning and ok in the afternoon. Terrible today (sunday).
