Pain in lower back and sciatica going down left leg and foot. Four herniated disks,Spurs,spinal stenosis,synovial cyst. I had decompression that relieved some of the disk pain and I think it caused sciatica which I had 2 months. I am currently having acupuncture that helped some of the leg pain. I'm taking alleve and am putting ice where the pain is. I'm also applying Bio freeze to affected areas.
