My frail 97 year old mother has sciatica. Does anyone have any idea on how to lessen her pain and spasms?
I am looking for ideas on how to lessen her AM pain and the spasms. She regularly sleeps a solid 10 hours each night, and so the eve. meds are worn off. We are living in her apartment so no nursing staff around. I worry about her falling because she is stubborn (and has some dementia) and won't call me into her room when she is ready to get up. But by late AM she is able to navigate quite well.
I'm grateful for any ideas. Her Dr. says add more ibuprofen.
