    Ice, Rest, Chiropractor, Stretching

Have two bulging discs...then took a fall 5 years ago tearing the Iliad crest. Continuous chronic pain in hip and down the left leg that pulls my knee out and adds to existing sciatica pain. Most activity is difficult but so is too much rest. Try some water exercise...chiro,massage, accupuncture, ice, heat, supplements, trigger point. But it never goes away and is at times excruciating. Not fun. Also have Fibromyalgia. Open to some new modalities.
