No it's YOUR Sciatica back hurts. I'm not entirely sure what brought this on. I did feel pretty sore when I visited my parents and slept in my old twin bed for a few nights. It also gets a little hairy when I'm at Boyfriend's and the cats are there:

It's not easy to squeeze into that side!

But either way, I woke up a couple days ago and my back hurt. Bad. 

The pain is shooting down my side and leg. Not good. 

Boyfriend told me I had to do this thing called "stretching."

Honestly how dare he.

So, I've been heating and stretching and standing and sitting for a couple of days now. Hopefully it'll get better soon. Sciatica relief tips, anyone?


  1. I only get it once in awhile and my strategy is just to wait until it goes away. Yeah, crappy strategy I know. I hope you feel better soon!

  2. Actually my advice would also be stretching (sorry!). Whenever I have a bad back/neck/shoulders I do stretches morning and night and it does wonders. I'm sure if I did stretches morning and night all the time I probably wouldn't get the pain to begin with, but I'm far too lazy for that!

  3. Sorry, I needed surgery for my sciatica!

  4. Stretching is stupid. I hate it. I don't know why I hate it but I do...especially because it works. So annoying.
    I hope your sciatica subsides soon.

  5. I thought Sciatica was the name of the newest SyFy space show, so I'm not going to be a lot of help here. Have you tried voodoo? Or opium?

  6. Strengthen the core with leg lifts. Also when you pick anything up from a bending position always look up at the ceiling, that straightens the spine and avoids aggravating the problem.

  7. I recommend rest and kitty snuggles
