See details: This is sciatica. Forget the chiropractor. You need to have this issue evaluated and treated. Start with you family doctor. If you do not have one, see a neurologist, orthopedist or pain specialist.

Get eval & treat: cause of pain. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) can help with both pain relief and in reducing inflammation. Examples are ibuprofen (like Advil, Nuprin or Motrin), Naproxen sodium (like Aleve, (naproxen) Naprosyn, Anaprox) or Asprin (such as Bayer, Ecotrin, Ascriptin). Avoid NSAID's if pregnant or allergic.
