    You should visit a doctor and see what is causing the pain first. That way you do not cause any more damage. I don't think a hot bath will cause any problem as long as it is not so hot to burn you. Maybe if your bed sags a lot and has lumps or holes - change it!

    See a doctor first before doing something to cause more problems.

    Check here a very effective Sciatica Natural Treatment ( http://cure-sciatica.info/ )

    Normally, I would not answer a question like this as my expertise is generally in medication but I had severe sciatica while I was pregnant with my 3rd child (after having had twins) and I had sciatica so bad that I was finding it difficult to walk. I tried massage therapy and physical therapy and could not take medication

    I went to the chiropractor and the pain was instantly relieved. My hips and lower back were out of alignment because I had carried twins the year before. On occasion a Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) can also work but they usually only work on one joint at a time - the chiropractor will do your whole back which works faster. Anyone who does not believe in chiropractors will tell you they are quacks - don't listen.

    I don't necessarily believe that chiropractors can cure things like diabetes but they can definitely relieve some types of back pain especially if a pinched nerve is involved which is usually the cause of sciatica.

    ~ warm up a heat pack and put it on before you go to bed, having a nap or just chilling.

    ~ you can buy a pain creams at your local chemist.

    ~ put tiger balm and ask someone to massage on the area where its sore.

    ~ Go against the wall with you back facing then stretch backwards all the way down as far as you can (i do this sometimes and it helps).

    Go to a headache and spine specialist let him-her determine best course of action especially if this is an ongoing problem.
