    Thanks for the info about your experiences. We all have gone through so much, haven't we?
    I am in my last week with a chiropractor for the sciatica. His xrays show the nerve is impinged upon by my pelvis which is slightly tilted. He will refer me to another dr. if the pain has not been helped. Actually, he has tried to help more than some of the drs. I have been to before, they just seem totally oblivious & possibly think I am imagining the back pain! I haven't been to an orthopedic specialist yet, or a neurologist either.
    My stomach condition isn't too painful so far, & it is not constant, so I can wait on that problem.
    Thanks for your help.
    Later, Molly

      You should try a different doctor when you go for your back. I would ask the Chiropractor what type doctor he recommends and if he can suggest a good one. If you haven't already, try stretching your hamstring, or ask the Chiropracter if you need to.

      It sounds like you need to start with a Gastroenterologist or at least call your PCP. My stomach has never "hurt" and I don't think that's good. The only thing I remember people having with a stomach that "hurt" was an ulcer, and those people being told not to eat spicy food or drink alcohol. Of course, if your stomach is queasy or nauseous, it could be a gillion things. I wouldn't let it go. I think the doctor would try medicine for an ulcer or GERD and/or do an endoscopy or CT scan, none of which would keep you from treating your back. Neither an endoscopy or CT scan requires a prep other than fasting.

      Let me know what happens. I hope everything gets better!
