Thanks Jesse for the Doctors e-mail. Heard from her the A.M.and she gave me the information I needed.
If you know of anyone that has even had a Sciatic Nerve you will know why I needed to get some information. Thanks Again

We had to use a doctor in San Pedro while we were there. My young son got a very nasty ear infection and was in a lot of pain. The girl that manages Paradise Villas got an appointment for us. We were very pleased with the doctor and the medication we were able to get. The cost was reasonable. We had to laugh though...... The doctor was on his way to the airport to go on vacation and showed up in a hawaiian shirt and flip flops. When he came in, my son wispered "Mom, is THAT the doctor???" Yes, life is easy in San Pedro.......LOL

Debbie: How's that weather in your area? Heard the storm is drenching Brownsville.
Thanks for the advise.

I am 10 miles north of Brownsville, and we did not get the rain they expected. Just a bit more than a drizzle for a few hours, by
noon the sun is out shining brightly. We do not have any muddles, much less a flood.
We need rain, but we do not want the wind. LOL

It's been raining here off and on all day. Thank God. My yard was literally crunchy. We desperately need the rain. The wind really kicked up here yesterday afternoon around 5:00. Had to wrestle my pickup on the way home from work. Still breezy, but not as bad. My son is excited though. Tropical depressions and storms mean big waves at the beach. He's a dedicated surfer. Makes me nervous as hell. I guess I'm just the typical worry wart mother. One saving grace, his surfing buddy is a lifegaurd at the community pool.
Well, guess all those zaney rain dances out back did the trick. LOL

Marty it comes with the computer territory!
I've been fighting this X%@* for two years. But after four doctors including two Chiropractors. And many, many Boo-Coo bucks later. My current doctor told me, I had an inflammed hip that effected the Sciatic Nerve. After 3 months with new medication,I could finally walk and sit with out that killer pain. I even got a cordless keyboard and mouse so I could lie down and work.
No one has any idea what pain is until you have a Sciatic problem. I feel for you. The only question is: Will it ever go away! For us, I doubt it too much computer work to do.

I have found your chair is the key.
Chair must have arm rests to raise and lower.
Chair must also be raised and lowered, often.
Flexible back on that chair too. The seat needs to be large enough to shift your butt from side to side often.
Anyone using a steno chair with out the above
features, is surely going to have problems.
No I do not sell chairs, just know from suffering the pain. LOL

Have such a chair. It comes from being very dedicated to ones work without regard to common sense of getting up and not sitting for longs hours at a time. A fault that did not correct until it was too late. I know some that have suffered from this horrible nerve problem by just twisting the wrong way. That pesky big nerve! I was very surprised how common of an injury it really is.

OH,Chloe: I forget those Bar Stools. HA Ha Thanks for the advise. I now try and remember to get up and take a break!
