In brief: Stretching

Many times acute sciatic pain will resolves after stretching the area abit.
The muscles will loosen up and help resolve pain. If not, then consider further imaging studies to see which exact nerve in your spine is getting pinched for further treatment options.

In brief: Not bedrest

Gradually introducing exercise like stretching, yoga, and non-impact or low-impact activities like swimming and cycling are crucial to our general health and improves chronic pain.
This is supported in research, and may help more than drugs or surgery.
