Sciatica Info

"Thou Cold Sciatica, cripple our Senators, that their Limbs may halt as lamely as their Manners"

William Shakespeare


The main symptoms of sciatica include lower back pain, buttock pain, and numbness in various parts of the leg and foot.  The true cause of sciatica is unknown but it is thought that it may be caused by the general compression of one of the five spinal nerve roots that comprise the sciatic nerve.

Other symptoms include pins and needles or tingling and difficulty in moving or controlling the leg. Typically, the symptoms are only felt on one side of the body. The pain may radiate below the knee, but does not always.

Although sciatica is a common form of leg and lower back pain, the meaning of the term is often misunderstood as it relates to the symptoms and not the real cause of what is causing the pain at the root of the nerve.

Treatments for sciatica depend on the diagnosed causes and pain levels. The causes can include compression of the sciatic nerve roots caused by a protruding disc in the lower back.

There are natural health remedies available that may help with the pain associated with sciatica.

  • Works well, but expensive

    star

    I've been taking magnesium capsules for a while for painful night-time leg cramps I get as a result of peripheral neuropathy (numb legs) from rheumatoid arthritis. The capsules work ok but I need four of the rather large capsules every day.

    I decided to try Liposomal Magnesium since that's supposed to be absorbed better, but when I take the recommended 10ml per day there is little effect. When I take one 20ml dose each evening before bed it works as well as the capsules. At 20ml a day I get no cramps at all, and if I don't take the magnesium I'm guaranteed to get painful cramps every time, so it most certainly works. I also sleep a little better.

    The taste and texture is a little strange but it's not a problem, and the bottle needs a really good shake every time. Somewhat more expensive than capsules, but way more convenient. I use two bottles a month, so it's nearly $100 monthly, compared to under $20 a month for the capsules.

    Some details about my dosage:
    To get the required effect I've found I needed the normal required daily intake (RDA) of Magnesium on top of whatever I get through my diet. The RDA for Magnesium is 4.5mg/kg for men. I'm 90kg so I need about 400mg per day. The bottle says to take 10ml daily but that only gives me 200mg of magnesium, and I've found this to be ineffective. When I take 20ml of the liquid per day, which is the RDA, it works well.

  • Noticable improvement in menopause related joint pain

    star

    I have recently been experiencing a LOT of pain in the lower back and hips, most likely due to the menopause and it has been affecting my sleep quality. Even my wrist and finger joints have been aching. After just a few days of taking these capsules I have noticed a significant improvement in pain both day and night. I think it has also reduced the intensity of my night sweats. Highly recommended!!!
