Sciatic nerve pinch pain, also called Sciatica, can lead the person suffering to a suicide attempt. Sciatica pain usually occurs from behind the lower back towards the thigh. It is usually caused by a herniated disc pushing down on the sciatic nerve. The symptoms of sciatic nerve pain usually include numbness, tingling sensation and pain when the person is walking. In severe cases the person can have trouble walking entirely.
The latter group is the one that is at risk for suicide. This group has to deal with severe pain on a daily basis, in addition to hopelessness from their frustration of not being able to walk.
If you think suicide is not a threat, think again. More than 1,100,000 Americans attempt suicide every year in United States. In fact one out of fourteen Americans knows someone who succeeded in killing themselves last year. As you can see the threat is quite real, and the pain/hopelessness found in patients with sciatic nerve pain are at risk.
The main reason sciatic nerve pinch pain is a risk for suicide, is because there really isn’t any long term solution. The only pinched sciatic nerve treatment includes taking pain killers on a daily basis, and essentially living a lifestyle that doesn’t put any pressure on the nerve. Basically you’ll have to avoid bending, sitting in soft chairs, never lifting anything and eating a lot of fiber, so that they can avoid constipation(straining in the bathroom is one of the worst problems for those with sciatic nerve pinch pain). You’ll also have to lie down and sleep on firm mattresses or on the floor and would need to get help getting up from the bath tub or bed.
So if you know someone who is suffering from a sciatica, you need to learn all the different hidden suicide warning signs, so that you can interfere when the person’s worsening condition drives them to attempt suicide. If you yourself are suffering from a sciatic nerve pain, you need to provide a suicide warning signs guide to a person with whom you interact on the daily basis…remember if you are ever driven to suicide, you won’t really be thinking…you might say now that there is no way you’d kill yourself because of your sciatic nerve pain…but when you condition worsens…you might think otherwise…at which point you’ll be glad that someone around you is able to interfere and save your life. Remember, the pain is temporary, suicide is permanent.
