have bone on bone in knees, get injections to help and hold off replacement, but sciatica in right leg began. was doing fairly well with chiropratcor. went for a deep tissue massage and now in severe pain in calf and . can not put weight on leg so using a walker to hop. stopped exercises to rest it up. not sure what to do next. taking ibprofin, rubbing heat lotion on leg and icing it. Help! very painful. sadly will never get a deep rub again, its worse than I ever experienced.
