Chronic: Sciatica refers to radicular symptoms from spinal stenosis. Pain may respond to nsaids, opiods. Neuropathic meds may help. Sometimes neurosurgery will help.

Sciatica: Lie flat in bed without a pillow at night. Use a heating pad set on low during the night. Take Ibuprofen for pain and above all get involved in an exercise program with a physiotherapist.
