K'lea16 daysDiagnosis: Bike seat up too high causing hyperextendion at neck and lower back. Winged and rotated scapular pressing on nerve causing numb fingers. Lower spine compensating causing mild lordosis and scoliosis causing muscle spasm in qualratus lumbourn, piriformus and a deep flexor along the spine. Reflection: Don't try to do so much all at once.details
nosnhoj17 daysThursday had massage and acupuncture which seemed to have helped. (March 1) After the Wednesday, it seemed to decline but was still about a grade 2 until the last week where it was a grade one. Also had a cold and the flu for the same time...related? Who knows. Or did I do something snowboarding and it just needed time to fix itself XC skied today pain free. Lets see what happens when I run.details

Nopsukka44 daysMä merkitsen tän nyt päättyneeksi. Jotain pienen pientä oiretta voi olla, mutta se ei enää häiritse elämää. Se voisi olla vaikka ns rupi. Kävin osteopaatilla, jumppasin, lepäsin ja vältin kipua tuottavia asioita. Luulen, että suurin tekijä oli aika. details
anniemac50 daysSmaller workouts (less mileage) more often seem to be helping. Less is more. Still taking 2 Naproxen / day. Feels okay for now.details
JonD58 days12.11. Going to stop tracking this bc I am back training but there is still some residual level 1 discomfort - history: able to run a marathon (w/ two extra strength Tylenol) during first 2 weeks/initial phase of sciatic problems, but not without some difficulty during (grade 1 to 2); and 1 week after that I had more severe problems (grade 3) that alternately inhibited pain-free walking and stopped running completely for a total of about 5 - 7 days; this was intermittent as I would occasion...details
RobP64 daysRest, rest, rest. Even though cycling and swimming don't hurt it, they don't help it get better.details

JamesBradshaw318 daysReally important to keep up regular strecthing in my particular case where my piriformis muscle was the culprit compressing my sciatic nerve. Consistant stretching helps lengthen the muscle and release the tension on the nerve and allow normal nerve function.details
