I Wonder...

Is sciatica ever stress related? It just occured to me that it happened the very first time after a month or so of extremely stressfull stuff happening and right before my interview out here in RI. And now this is the first time it's been back since then and I'm kinda stressed out again. Not as much specific stressors like last time, just general stressed-out-ed-ness (shut up, I can make up words if I want)

Could that be what's making this happen?

And in completely unrelated news... I just bought plane tickets for Gnomedex. For some reason I'm not as excited to go as I was last year. I'm very much looking forward to seeing everybody again, but for some reason I'm just not as gung-ho as I was. Weirdness! Oh and have I mentioned... I have issues!

Hey Sweetie. Sorry you are not feeling well and are in pain. YUK! I am sure sciatica has lots of causes, but one thing for sure. Stress/Pain leads to tense muscles, which decreases the oxygen available to the muscles which leads to pain,which leads to more tense muscles, and so on. You get the general drift. Do whatever you can to try to relax.... hot soaks, lots of deep breathing, thinking calm thoughts, and if all else fails.....lots of pain meds ! I do hope you mend quickly ! Love you, AB
