I can recommend using a T.E.N.S. machine. When my sciatica kicked off again in the autumn, I got only limited relief from the physio exercises, but using the tens unit really took most of the discomfort away.

Ski machine? Doing something new and quite a lot of time might have gradually aggravated something.
Hope you get on top of it soon :-)

Thanks all.
Both doctor and physio AS confirm not sciatica but calf muscle issue. Cramping? Brutal calf massaging by physio. Another appt Thursday morning. See how we go. No swelling/bruising but extremely sore.
