I ran 40 miles a week up until Feb, when I developed Sciatica:piriformis-syndrome
What a pain in the a##.
I was told to do the following: WAIT, REST and take lots of Ibuprofen.
A person who has run for years cannot wait and rest so. . .
3 Marathons & 8 half's in 2 years.

I am trying stretching and limiting my running to 3 miles a day + walk 3 more.
But today my a## is killing me.
I am turning to my fellow minimalist runners for help!!
Suggestions?

As they told you (I guess the physician), REST, it is the best you can do for now.

Go see a chiropractor who practices applied kinesiology. He/she will find the cause and help rebalance everything.

Go see an RKC certified trainer and learn to swing.  That will take care of your aerobic needs and make you beg for something less strenuous like walking or just taking it easy. 

I second getting a physical therapist's evaluation as well.  I have a very small medical circle of trust that I can turn to, and I would encourage you to build your own.  In today's market, you can find a doctor who will say just about anything.  Your job is to find the one who makes the most sense to you and go from there. 

I hope you get well soon.

I agree with everything everyone's said.  Obviously there's some sort of imbalance that needs to be sorted out by a professional, but in the meantime rest and/or alternate exercise that doesn't cause more pain is the best way to go.  And maybe with your newly found free time you can take up meditation and learn to accept that everything changes, and even things we've been doing for years can't stay the same forever.

What you've done in the past two years is amazing!  But perhaps it might have been too much in a short span of time.

So true.  There will come a time for all of us runners when our bodies will say, "We've gone a long way and done so much.  Can we rest for a bit?"

It's hard to see fellow runners out there while you're on the sidelines recuperating, but -- as everyone else on the thread mentioned -- it's best to rest.

I hope you make a speedy recovery.

it's brutal to sidelined for a long time, I would know.  My best advice is don't cheat - do what the docs tell you, don't convince yourself you can come back sooner, even if you feel good.  Getting hurt again because you were stupid is even more painful than getting hurt in the first place.  Best of luck in your recovery.
