Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Typically, Sciatica affects just one side of your body.
Sciatica usually happens when a herniated disk, bone spur on the spine or narrowing of the spine (spinal stenosis) compresses part of the nerve. This causes inflammation, pain and sometimes some numbness within the affected leg.
Although the pain associated with Sciatica can be severe, most cases resolve with non-operative treatments in a few weeks. People who have severe Sciatica that is associated with significant leg weakness or bowel or bladder changes could be candidates for surgery.
Pain that radiates from your lower (lumbar) spine to your buttock and down the back of your leg is the hallmark of Sciatica. You might feel the discomfort virtually anywhere on the nerve pathway, however, it’s especially likely to follow a path from your low back to your buttock and also the back of your thigh and calf.
The pain can vary widely, from a light ache to a sharp, burning sensation or torture-some pain. Generally it can feel like a jolt or electrical shock. It can be worse when you cough or sneeze, and prolonged sitting can worsen symptoms. Sometimes only one facet of your body is affected.
Some individuals even have numbness, tingling or muscle weakness within the affected leg or foot. You might have pain in one part of your leg and numbness in another part.
