sacrilization of L5

I was diagnosed with this after the L5 separated when I was in my late 20's or early 30's.  The night it happened, I could feel my legs but had no use of them.  I did not go to the doctor, but it took months and months to be able to sit down or stand up or stand any any period of time.  I am now having sciatic pain and my lower L5 seems to be hitting a nerve every so often, usually when I am sitting.  Any suggestions as to how this can be fixed, or do I have to just "live with it" the rest of my life.  I am now 52.  I can not lay on my back for long and throughout the night I have wake up to shift positions because my hips are aching.

  Hi and welcome to the Spinal Cord C/D support forum.

I would highly suggest seeing a Dr to find out what all is going on....

Had u considered u may have a condition that ur joints shift out of place, and can be moved back?....if u did have that it may be a matter of readjusting u and then wearing a brace for now to keep it there...u may need to do exercises to help strengthen  the muscles to help keep things where they belong.
