Hi, anyone have nerve pain in the foot and buttock pain (but only when standing)? Lying down, all symptoms disappear.
I read a post from 2017 where someone had the same symptoms...
Welcome bansuz01 we’re glad you’re here!
I have the same issue, when my sciatica is acting up, the only thing that helps is laying down, I also use ice packs when sitting, they provide temporary relief.

@challenger When you say laying down helps your sciatica do you mean laying on your back, side or stomach? Is one better than the other?
No, just lying down. Horizontal...the symptoms disappear.
And it’s not sciatica as such. The foot burns and tingles, but no symptoms anywhere else in the leg.
Generally, just laying down helps, I rarely lay on my back, usually on my side with my knees bent
