    Default Sciatica

    I have been plagued by sciatica for the last 6 months now. Nothing has helped and at times I'm brought to tears by the unrelenting pain of it all. Finally I tried using Aleve morning and night and have had a modicum of relief. It's certainly not gone but it is more tolerable.

    I have 2 questions:
    1) Do you think the inflammation from my Lupus is aggrevating the sciatica pain?
    2) On the Aleve bottle it says to only take for 10 days. Is that written in stone or only a guideline?

    Thanks

    I'm not sure on first question. On second, ask doc for script of naproxen. Its the same thing as aleve, just a little stonger. Aleve worked decently enough for me, told doc and thats what he told me and gave me the script and plenty refills. Hope rhis helps.
