Feeling a bit fed up at the moment. I've been unable to do the workouts for a while due to illness. Yesterday I was really motivated and feeling ready to get back into the way of it, then at work my sciatica kicked in. 😔 Haven't had any problems with it for a while, but it makes it difficult to walk and get off a chair let alone workout! Does anyone have any suggestions about little things I could do? The workouts were a major part of the guides for me and I'm not achieving the results I'd like due to the lack of them. 😢

Do some gentle stretching! I find that helps my lower back problems immensely.

I always use a hot water bottle to help my sciatica . I try to keep active as often find it makes it worse if I don't - even though I might feel pain at first , movement helps to settle it .

Hello beautiful I'm so sorry to hear that!! Try taking magnesium supplements as it helps to relax your muscles, a bath is great too!! Definitely see the out GP before starting any exercise if you are in pain. I hope you feel better soon 💛💛

Thank you, Pincess. ☺ I will try the bath salts. Hopefully they help - it's the frustration that gets to me more than the pain! xx

Poor you that's horrible. How about Epsom salt baths. They are good for settling nerve pain like sciatic pain. They must be pure Epsom salts - amazon is good as they do 5 and 10 kg tubs and add 500g and soak for 15 mins. Sometimes a really deep tissue massage is good too. Xx
