Riddle me this? How do two doctors send a diabetic home with steriods for an undisclosed condtion? And never did they mention and changes I might need to be aware of, being a diabetic. Not to menation, the fact that they couldn’t figure out or even consider psorisis now that I have learned more about it, it’s pretty common. I’m not a doctor and I wasn’t aware of this disease. What I have become aware of, is if you catch it early you can take steps to minimize the breakout hence pain. I’m considering taking further action.
Medicines are commonly prescribed for the treatment of sciatica, but evidence for pain medication is poor.  Specifically, low-quality evidence indicates that NSAIDs do not appear to improve immediate pain and all NSAIDs appear about equivalent.    Evidence is also lacking in use of opioids and muscle relaxants by usual means.  In those with sciatica due to piriformis syndrome, botulinum toxin injections may improve pain and or function.  There is little evidence for steroids, either epidural or by pill.   Low-quality evidence supports the use of gabapentin for acute pain relief in those with chronic sciatica.
