hi, I’m new here.
I have had sciatic pain for several years which became worse in the last couple years where I would get more frequent and longer flare up’s.
Long story short.... in September 2017 I had a very painful flare up that last a couple weeks. Just the sciatic pain in my back. Everyone told me I should try a chiropractor. I was desperate, so I did. He adjusted me for the 3rd time and I walked out of his office and fell to the ground. My entire left leg was completely numb. I went in my car and cried and called my primary dr. He ordered and mri and it showed a large disc herniation. He told me to do PT. I did with zero success. Numbness and weakness was always there but my pain in my back was getting better. Due to the numbness in my leg, in January 2018, I bent over and my left knee dislocated which resultered in knee surgery. He sent me to the NS and he wanted me to do the discectomy. I got it today and my sciatic back pain is so severe now. Is this normal? What is happening
