Doctor it only hurts when I Do This
The comical response is, "So don't do that!!!" If what makes "it" hurt is standing, sitting, or especially, breathing, we are in trouble. For back pain sufferers, all these things and many others are painful. Back pain sufferers are forced to change their lives when they are "down in the back". Favorite activities become memories and busy people can be stopped dead in their tracks by back pain.
WHAT EXACTLY IS SCIATICA
Sciatica is the inflammation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the largest and longest nerve in the entire body. It extends from the spinal cord all the way down the legs to the feet and toes. The sciatic nerve helps you to "run for the bus" and "wiggle your toes in the sand".
That Tingling Feeling
The foot is a remarkable mechanism and is as complex as any system in the body. Containing 26 bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, a complicated nerve supply; it isn't surprising that it is reported that 75% of Americans complain of foot problems each year.
Pain is a familiar symptom. What about a "Tingling Sensation" that doesn't hurt, but keeps recurring. We've heard people say: "Don't worry about it. Your foot's just asleep." That is a familiar sensation to us all. You cross your leg and then find that it has gone numb. The ensuing "pins and needles" sensation is referred to as "gone to sleep."
Vertigo Scarier Than Hitchcock
"If I wanted to be this dizzy, I'd go to an amusement park!"
To people who have never suffered from vertigo, it doesn't seem like such a big deal. If they could think how their lives would change with their environment continuously whirling about them sickeningly, they would very likely change their opinion. Vertigo is not necessarily painful but it can be debilitating and continuously disorienting. Driving may be impossible and walking across a room may have dangerous consequence, too. Often, people with vertigo need help just getting by.
