Sci at ic a. I had two herniated discs (l4/l5 and l5/s1) and foot drop. Pain wasn't the issue, loss of function in my left leg was the issue. Scary stuff. Tried PT, steroids, epi. Had to have surgery to correct it. Still not 100% by any stretch, but massive improvement over where I was. During the time I had the nerve impingement, I had a fair bit of nerve death in my leg. Hasn't fully recovered - probably 85%. Sucks to get old.

Oh and I've since used a chiropractor to try to fix some related nerve problems that cause painful cramping in my left hip. Hasn't helped much.
