I joined a gym a couple of years to lose a little weight and tone. As time passed the muscles in my butt and back of my thighs felt like they were on the verge of cramping all the time. About a month ago I had some dental work done and was given a script for swelling. When I finished the script my muscle pain became impossible to tolerate. Getting out of bed was the worst. Standing up straight before my muscles warmed up pulled those muscles so bad. A friend of mine suggested yoga. I bought yoga for beginners DVD and did it every other night for a week. It didn't take long for me to find out how bad my posture is. So, with bad posture and lifting weights I figured I must have had a pinched nerve or something. So I took a 3 week break from the gym, started taking Vicodin and kept doing the yoga DVD. I had to pay attention to my posture at all times, but when I had it right I could feel the pressure release in my lower back. And when I had it wrong I felt the instant pain in my muscles.
I started feeling better a little more each day. At the end of the three weeks I decided to Google lower back pain to find out exactly what was wrong with me. I came across Sciatica. Every single one of my symptoms were there. From what I read the more active you are the better you will feel. I started going back to the gym and I'm pain free most of the day now. I think once I put the correct posture with strengthening the muscles that will support me I'm taking the pressure off the sciatic nerve. I'm not 100% yet, but I can stand up straight as soon as I get out of bed with no pain. Today was my 4th day of going back to the gym.
Oh man, I just about died laughing at this!!
