Hi, I'm 22 years old and I've worked concrete for the past 2 years. I started getting lower back pain about 6 months ago. Nothing I couldn't handle as far as pain goes. Then about a month ago the pain got really bad. Enough to go Doctor. Then a couple days later the sciatica pain started. Sometimes so bad I couldn't even walk. See the doctor next week for the third time. Says he's going to send me to a specialist. So I've had sciatica for a full month. I can't work. Can't drive. I've been taking anti inflammatory prescription pills from the doctor and done 6 physical therapy sessions. It's not getting any better. I don't think it's getting worse because I know how to handle it now. I've been avoiding anything that hurts. I walk everyday. I did light duty at work a few times. Just wondering if anyone can help. When is this going to go away? I can't sleep and I stand in class for the whole time. I'm going crazy!!!
