I got nerve damage in lower legs,calf,I have reported on this previously,sciatic is new.
Yesterday went to doctor about nerve damage moving over my knee in thigh area.
This started from my Moderma booster shot in late Nov. 2021 at end of Dec. My lower legs ached ached severely till middle of March when one Morning I found my right breast swollen and two lymph nodes exposed in arm pit along with a 1 1/2" red stripe down to my ankle from lymph nodes in arm pit,severe pain in groin area.
Since then doctor of no help with aching legs,yesterday,checked legs and said no evidence of blood clots but right leg very stiff and said problem with sciatic nerve and wrote presc. for sciatic nerve rehab.
I was wondering if anyone has used this type facility and how they might aid nerve damage.
I am barely able to walk and do not drive.Legs barely support me.

Yoga would help. Curcumin/turmeric daily. Massage. Chiropractic. Even acupuncture. I have had success with all.

Ask your Dr.

* If a trial with Gabapentin would help ease the pain.

* A good physical therapist can manipulate the area with stretching, infrared, TENS and ice/heat to end the session.

* If you need more intervention Radiofrequency ablation can be really helpful. There is a nerve block to see if ablation would be successful.

Get a second opinion....Sounds more like a phlebitis, cellulitis or inflammatory neuritis with adenopathy. Sciatica would be one of the last things to consider, if at all....The coincidence of getting the vax may have activated a latent virus-- like shingles-- the lack of the classic festering rash doesn't necessarily deter that diagnosis.

I had awful sciatica in the fall of 2018, and finally went in for a series of acupuncture treatments. I was not opposed to acupuncture before that, but it seemed foreign to me. It was the pain and nothing-working that finally drove me to try it. It actually WORKED. It was not night and day, gone in a flash, but there was discernible improvement in the days following even the first treatment. I think I went 4-5 times in all, over the course of about 3 weeks, and it was gone by the end of that time. It was going NOWHERE before that, so I attribute the healing entirely to acupuncture.

See if they can set you up with this injection I had. You have nothing to lose.

You just lost your wife, your body is probably going to break down, it happens. I had one year about 6 years ago where it happened to me. I ended up with shingles and a few other issues where my body got so run down.

I think all on here have not taken me seriously that my moderma booster shot blasted my femoral artery,I have said damage was done to blood vessels and Cleveland Clinic proved it.
Last week I was going to call my vascular surgeon but was busy with other problems.
The surgeon is the one to call,DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis in rear of calf,blockage,not to dangerous but continual pain.It can be detected with imaging,duplex venous imaging with other tests available if necessary. You pushed me long enough to find this,I have had this since mid December 2021.
