I've posted something similar before, but I have a different question on the same subject. For those who have suffered from sciatica, what's the longest flare up you've had? I'm dealing with mainly tingling, but on occasion I'll get the pain (not severe). The tingling is what freaks me out. At first is was pretty constant. Now it comes and goes and is less in intensity. But, it's been going on for about 6 1/2 weeks now. AND on top of that, I'm now suffering from tingling down my arm/fingers due to a new injury that I haven't had examined yet. It may seem simple, but as you know with anxiety, I can't focus on much else, I'm driving my husband insane by my constant focus and talking about it, and I'm terrified of the "what if's".
