Try acupuncture for the sciatica - I am quite serious. Had is last year and it was debilitating. 3 sessions with the acupuncturist over 2 weeks, and after the 1st session 75% better, and after the third, it was as if I never had it.

Was it a permanent solution?

Only after 3 visits, SiM?

I used to be a 1.5 pack a day smoker. Tried going cold turkey but I literally felt like crawling the walls. 

 

Doctor prescribed Wellbutrin, as my insurance would cover it if prescribed for anxiety. It's the same thing as Zyban, which is explicitly for quitting smoking. 

 

That stuff did the trick. I was able to stop smoking without feeling the anxiety. I've been smoke free for almost twenty years.

I don’t know you but as far as the sciatica goes, I recently had something called a hydodissection and the Doctor told me he helped someone with bad sciatica that could not find a solution prior to him. I had a cervical fusion that didn’t go well and tried this simple in office procedure which was relatively painless.  Google the procedure .  I drove over two hours to see this Doctor and it was worth it.  Not sure where you live but his name is Dr Tortland from Glastonbury Ct.   Good Luck

Yes and Yes, at least for me. The issue for me was some soft tissue damage between the two vertebrae where the root of the sciatica nerve is.The acupuncture helps increase blood flow to that tissue and stimulates faster healing and reduces the inflammation, relieving the pressure on the nerve root. At least that is what I was told, and I can't argue with success.
