Anyone suffer from sciatic pain?

When I first got it, the shooting pain was so bad the doctor gave me muscle relaxers. They made me a loopy for a few hours, so that was not an option.
It comes and goes, but now it's more of a dull constant pain on some days.
I use a heating pad to soothe it, and I have been doing back and ab exercises to strengthen that area, which was the advice from the doctor.
Does anyone have any advice as to how to cope with this?
Certain yoga exercises?
It's a pain in the a$$, literally.

its amazing, I haven't been able to go the last few weeks because I have been so sick, but go to the reformer classes (they can be a little expensive) but they are amazing!

Here is the book:
Amazon.com: Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth: Book 1: Books: Peter Kelder
It is a wonderfully quick and easy read that has changed my outlook on life. I highly recommend it

He uses heating pads too, but tries to go to therapy when he can. He says the massages help.

I will definitely check out that book Jamie, thank you. Sounds like I have to work a different muscle group (from the way I have been) to get the support I need in that area.
I had a massage a little over a week ago and she made it hurt for a bit, but then it felt better... but I cannot afford that all the time I would like one at least once a month though.
I have gone to the chiro before and did help with a different pinched nerve, but due to a recent experience my FI had, I don't think i will go to one again.
The time I took muscle relaxers, I was in such pain I could barely walk Amy. Your poor brother!
I am definitely not that bad now. It's just constant and I need it to stop!
Thanks again everyone.

I usually try to use the heating pad and it dulls it, but it still hurts, it doesn't usually go away until my period starts and then it will usually be gone within 24 hours.
I never had the pain when I was pregnant, at least not that I remember, but I really just want it to go away!!
When we were on our honeymoon I had one day where my back started to hurt, I was thinking NOOOOO, I don't need this pain while I'm in mexico, on my honeymoon!!! but then it subsided until the day I got home and then it was horrible!
Let me know if you find anything that helps, I went to the chiropractor before too and I really didn't feel like it helped with the back pain.
