Hello Casandra,
Good to hear you were doing great. If you have had a bit of a relapse you may have been pushing yourself a bit too much. Stay active and pay more attention to your rest and recovery between activities. Also monitor want triggers your sciatic symptoms most so you can adjust accordingly. Best wishes.
