So it turns out that I have something called piriformis syndrome, where a small muscle in my butt (just under the glutes) has tightened up so much (through sitting) that it’s pressing on the sciatic nerve and causing a lot of pain in my lower back, butt and right down my left leg. Unfortunately sitting is incredibly painful and seems to make the pain a whole lot worse.
Things are getting gradually better after a lot of acupuncture, chiropractic, deep tissue massage, Rolfing, stretching, hot baths and heat treatments but progress is slow, and as you can imagine, blogging is almost impossible.
So I’ve reluctantly and sadly decided to stop blogging for a bit and just focus on resting my hip and getting treatment, hopefully back at the beginning of January.
In the meantime I wish you all a very happy holiday season, with lots of love and laughter. I will miss you all horribly.
If anyone has had this and can recommend any treatmets that helped you, let me know in the comments. I’m dying of frustration here.
