sciatica/fibroids

I have had 3.5 yrs of left sided pain in the buttock , left hip radiating down the back of my left leg into my foot. An xay showed degenerative changes at L5, MRI of L spine showed L3-4 disc bulge. One year  ago I also found out I had a left side 7cm fibroid (subserosal). I had a fibroid embolization done and it has shrunk to 5.5cm in a year. I have tried everything from accupuncture, shiatsu, rehab pilates, cranial sacral work, physio, osteopathy, orthotics, and nothing helps very much.Any suggestions??

Hi.

If surgery is not yet indicated for the spine abnormality and you would rather be treated conservatively, you could also try transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation to try and help relieve the nerve pain.

Hope this helps.
