I am dealing with sciatica and femoral nerve pain and it is making me disable to do any of my regular activity including cooking and and shopping.

Thanks for using the forum. I am happy to address your questions, and my answer will be based on the information you provided here. Please make sure you recognize that this forum is for educational purposes only, and it does not substitute for a formal office visit with a doctor.

Without the ability to examine and obtain a history, I can not tell you what the exact cause of the symptoms is. However I will try to provide you with some useful information.

This question is probably best served in a physical therapy/sports medicine message board, however I will do my best to try and help you, assuming you have been correctly diagnosed with sciatica.  Exercises that stretch and strengthen the muscles in your lower back, abdomen, and thighs may help reduce your pain.  Specific exercises are Piriformis stretches, Stretching out your back, and hamstring stretches.  Great options to strengthen your muscles would be Pilates or Yoga.  Other simple ideas are to maintain good posture, and if your overweight, perhaps try to lose a few pounds to take the stress off that area.  

Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions, I hope you find the information I have provided useful, good luck.
