Comment from: sue, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: January 12

I had sciatica from a fall. I fell and hit the bottom of my back on the ice I only got the pain two days later and it felt like a really bad tooth ache. The pain shot down my right buttock and down my right leg. It was like a nagging tooth ache. Sitting down was awful. I only got relief from the pain by walking. This was hard with the pain from my back. In the end I went to the doctors and got some pain killers it still hurts but not as bad as it has.
