Sciatica came back, with Thor's Hammer.

I was suddenly awaken yesterday (7am), came up rapidly, ran downstairs, and took care of the person that has woken me up.

Sat down for a minute, when Thor's Hammer came down.  

A strong, twisting, shooting pain came on my left side, that quickly reminded me that my Sciatica is back, and it's not taking prisoners.  I fell on to the floor, twisting and writhing in pain. It's a spasm that cannot be stopped unless you relax your muscles and take 4-sec inhalations and 4-sec exhalations. No one in the house could help me. I could not take any pills since I haven't eaten anything yet.  I could not turn to any position that I desire, since it involved, moving my core, which at that time, was a raging fire.  When it did subside, after almost 40 minutes to an hour before I could turn for half a quarter.  Just enough to slide a slab of ice pack the size of a 24 oz steak.   That numbed the pain away, but the spasm continued like a bull in Pamplona, except, it wants to gore someone----something.

2 hrs into laying on the hard floor, I was able to twist flat on my back, just enough that I can position, this time, the heating blanket, to loosen the muscles, but not the nerve that's sending twisting pulses of pain to my brain.  Once loosened for about 30 minutes, I'm able to turn my leg (on the affected side = left) like in this video


I did this stretch till 8pm after finally eating and drinking something, with 3 pills of Aleve (muscle relaxant) with combination of hot and cold treatment. By 10pm, with aid of crutches I was able to get off the floor.

Today, after sleeping on the floor, I awoken stiff as a board, but, able to get off the floor without help from the crutches. In the Pain Scale (1-10, 10 being the most painful), yesterday was 20, @ 10 pm was 2, today went from 3-6 as the day progress.
Still no crutches, but, hurts like crazy.
