Sciatica is a catch-all term used to describe pain that radiates from the buttock down the leg. It is usually caused by irritation of one of the contributing roots of the sciatic nerve in the lumbar spine. One of the causes is a herniated disk. If there is no nerve deficit on exam (strength, reflexes, and sensation are normal) then the disk will usually dessicate (dry out and shrink) naturally and symptoms will resolve. I have seen small disks cause tremendous pain and require intervention, and I have seen tremendous disks cause minimal or no pain. Reassurance that the symptoms are likely to resolve naturally are generally indicated if the sensation, strength, and reflexes are normal.
I agree. We have increased our hours and have increased the amount of time for each patient to compensate for increased demand. Sorry for the waiting time.
I am so happy that you are feeling well. Helping people in trouble is my greatest pleasure. That's why I became a doctor.
I am sometimes asked to 'referee' (act as a medical expert) in cases where legal claims are made regarding car accidents. Sorry, but I have to call them as I see them. I am happy to care for people through their regular insurance if the accident claims are dismissed by the PIP system.
Osteoporosis is a condition that causes the bones to weaken. It is most common in older women.
