I would recommend strength training. Specifically squats and deadlifts (might as well bench too) will strengthen your spinae erectors and help keep your vertebrae (and hence the electrical system that runs through them) stable.
I had sciatica from a fall injury, both legs hurt, felt like a knife in my back. SQWATZ will fix you up.

I really hope you feel better. It sucks. It's a level of pain that's almost unimaginable at times. You know that pain that's so bad you just feel electrical sensations because your brain can't even process the pain as "pain" anymore? (I'm not talking about neuropathy "tingling" or other neurogenic sensations - though that's part of it too, of course - I'm talking about pain that starts out as pain but then gets so bad progressively that you literally can't feel it as the thing we normally call pain anymore. Lol.) If you've been there... you have my sympathy. Get well.

OK, it may sound stupid, but it has been a life-changer for some...don't carry your wallet in your back pocket. They say it's a fugly fashion crime, but hey, if carrying a slimline in the front eases the pain...who cares?
