my boyfriend is currently suffering from severe sciatica since may of this year. he is generally a really warm person but recently he has started getting really cold hands, feet and other cold areas. is this something we should be worried about?
we have tried physiotherapy and chiropracters but nothing seems to be helping him. we have been to see his gp but dont seem to be getting anywhere its just different tpyes of medication he gets put on. we are not sure what other options or methods to take?

Hi Anonymous, 

Did you check out the link I posted above? All forms of treatment for Sciatica are mentioned there.

The cold hands and feet are things that do not seem to be a result of Sciatica, if he hasn't done so already he may want to mention this to his doctor since this may be a problem with circulation.

Please keep us posted,

Hi firechick,

Thanks for your question and I am sorry you are suffering from sciatica pain, I know it is extremely painful. I did find the same questions posted by another member a few months ago. I hope it helps!
