I was injured at work right years ago as a Producer Assistant Mgr when I was knocked flat on my back. A month later when I returned to work I picked up a box of bananas and the bottom dropped out. I developed sciatica and quit my job when staff thought I had a stroke because I was dragging a leg. I went to school as a medical assistant and self diagnosed Piriformis syndrome with sciatica because any MRI came up neg. To this day I still walk uneven and chirp only gives me a day after of pain, and doctors push pills or tell me it's all in my head. It is maddening and aggravating because the weight I lost came back and I know that doesn't help. I'd go to Spine Center in a second but the deductible is really high even with my insurance. I can't walk without the use of a cane and I don't want to live like this any more!!!
