do you have to let it linger?

Over the last 2 days, I had some wicked sciatica pain acting up. What was the worst thing about it? Was it the shuffling around the grocery store feeling like a 98-year-old woman in a housecoat? Was it the inability to find a comfortable sitting position? Or perhaps the need to grab onto walls and furniture to get around my house?

No, the worst thing about my back pain was when I let out a really terrible fart and was then forced to stand in its cloud because I couldn't get away fast enough.
