My wife suffers from similar problems.Thanks!
You know! MRI has detected three bulged discs (two very bad) at the moment and it has been lower back and sciatica hell since Easter weekend! I am very fortunate to be able to WFH, however the hydromorphone and gabapentin are only doing so much. See a neurosurgeon on Monday. Keeping my fingers crossed!
I hope you are able to overcome these 'painful' issues. . . .
