I love it when I get comments on the blog.
I just realized I could go back over my posts from earlier this year to see what helped the sciatica before. It’s just as painful now as it was then, BUT my shoulders, arms, hands, knees and feet are almost back to normal. That’s a big help! Last time I had sciatica from the end of May to the end of August. I think it will be shorter this time (three weeks so far) because the other parts of my body are going to participate in my healing. My post about face yoga was a particularly good reminder. Relax that face and neck, puh-leeze.
Right before bed last night I did Trikonasana (triangle) and Parsvakonasana (extended side angle) to see if it would help my leg stay relaxed through the night. It didn’t quite, so at about 1:30 am I got up and did the same two poses, twice on each side, in the bathroom in the dark. It was so weird! Then I went right back to sleep.
