    So my sciatic(spelling) nerve is driving me CRAZY! lately it seems like any time I lay on the couch, or am trying to sleep my right leg goes numb. Now, right now I'm trying o lay on my left side as much as possible, however, I just can't do it. Anyone know any sleeping positions that might help? Or tips? I was going to ask my sister as she is a paramedic but I keep missing her when she's home. ugh.

    I swear I don't get a good night sleep between this and having too pee!
