I am dealing with sciatica in both of my legs. The symptoms I am dealing with are burning, tingling, sharp shooting pain in both legs, aching, and pain in my feet. It is now becoming hard for me to stand or be on my feet a long time . The sciatic flare is from a slip in fall accident I had six years back. I was diagnosed with lumbar facet syndrome.
