I thought I’d try this with some vanilla agave and half-and-half today. Hot, of course.

It’s actually quite nice this way. I find the vanilla agave to be really finicky, especially with regular teas, but it seems to pair well with matcha.

Unrelated, but has anyone suffered from sciatica? I think all the sitting I’ve been doing at my desk has led to it. It’s driving me CRAZY. It’s so hard to sleep at night when one of my legs is simultaneously numb and in pain, and cold. Hope it isn’t permanent.

Yes, to sciatica. :( There are some simple stretches that can help (Yoga: Pigeon Pose, modified for sure), but I highly recommend massage/chiro/physio.

Yes, and all of the above and anything that stretches the hamstrings really well truly helps. It is miserable. I hope you feel better soon,

ughghgh, I had problems with that, mainly during my 4th pregnancy, the one who just turned 21. He weighed over 10 lbs at birth ;p
gentle yoga, taichi.
BTW, the only times I have problems with it now is if I eat something with gluten in it! I know that sounds crazy, but it’s true!

Thank you so much for the feedback! If anyone doesn’t mind answering, how long have you had it, and/or does it seem permanent for you? I read that it can go away in around six weeks.

Terri, that is so bizarre! Perhaps you’ve developed a sensitivity to gluten which causes inflammation.

I’ll definitely look into massage, chiro, physio, or maybe even acupuncture, since my health plan covers all of that. I’ve heard sketchy things about chiropractors though. :/

If you just leave it and don’t do anything, then no it won’t go away. The trick is finding someone who’s really good for treatment. My mom has a really good chiropractor that doesn’t do the snap-crackle-pop thing, and her sciatica is a lot better now. He does a lot of muscle work, acupressure, and adjusts silently. I personally haven’t had good luck with physio, but again, you just need to find someone good.

Ah, I’m glad your mom has a good one. Thank you for the advice! And I hope it’s been getting steadily better for you. Mine progressed to burning pain last night so I think I ought to do something about it. :)
