    I don't know if these sites can help, but I feel for you. Hope you can find relief here.

    I can't believe that I forgot to check my answers and it's only today I found out that you kindly replied. Thank you, I will check the websites.
    I had never had sciatica until a couple of weeks before I became suspicious of having fibromyalgia. I had had an upset the week before and had just gotten over having a mild flu. It wasn't until one day my cat stepped up onto my leg while I was sitting down and realizing that it hurt that something was wrong. My Mom has FM so I was confident that I knew what it was. I've had neck problems for over 10 years. I'm being treated by a chiropractor now and feel alot better than I did.

    If you're not already, see an arthritis specialist or a nuerologist. Anti-depressants work well. Don't give up on yourself if one treatment doesn't work or if another gives you uncomfortable side effects. I can let you know what all has worked for me if you would like.

    Thank you for taking the time to reply. I am on amitriptyline at night now which stops me from feeling really low, acupuncture helps my neck butI still have problems with te leg and the pain in all my joints...never mind,I'm sure we'll get to the bottom of this.
    Thanks again
