sciatica and falling

Hi, looking for some info on sciatica.
my hubby is 51 and since a car accident hes been diagnosed with slipped disc.
he gets numbness+shooting pain in the left side of his backside, thigh, leg, foot.
he is also falling.

everyone has been telling him that its uncommon to fall with this, but hes fallen so many times and has been hospitalised twice from falling and banging his head.

is falling common with the numbness of the leg?

I'd appreciated any information/advice

I don't have sciatica but I do have numbness in my legs quite often and I've also had my fair share of falls... My legs will just give out on me without warning... That's why I'm pretty much glued to my power chair... At least it's better than falling...

Hopefully someone will chime in that will have more knowledge about this... I hope he gets better I know it has to be hard on you too...

I'll be praying,
Carol

thanks for the prayers,
he's seen a specialist on the 26th of this month, so god willing he will at least get some answers.

i wish my hubby was like you and sat down...he is a nightmare, wont sit and ends up falling.

anyway, all the best and hope things work out well for you
