|I have been cripping around for the last week with a bad back.. It had finally gotten so bad that I couldn’t stand or walk for any length of time without excruciating pain. So I finally gave up and went to a clinic today. After waiting for 2 ½ hours, I finally got in to see the nurse practitioner. What a joke. She never got within 3 feet of me, just sat on her stool and announced that I had sciatica. She prescribed 2 meds, which never even touched the pain. So I went back to my generic naproxen and suffered through. It was helpful to sit in the hot tub in the evening where I could do some stretches. But I never really got any better.
