Is there anything that medicaid/medicare can do for a pinched sciatic nerve? I've got people from the bone & joint source who would love to give me cortisone shots. This is NO cure, it actually will weaken ones bones! When I lose weight in the backside, the pain lessens & goes away. But when those few pounds come back, so does the pain. I happened to gain 30 pounds rapidly after quitting smoking. I'm not an overeater whatsoever, if anything a health food nut. But the rapid weight gain, did me in. I'm wondering if weight removal in the general area would do the trick? Perhaps go back to heavy smoking? I don't think so! Frustrated!
