Sciatica is a spine condition where pain travels and radiates along the sciatic nerve, the largest nerve of the spine. The pain usually occurs on one side of the body only, beginning from the lumbar region, covering the hips and buttocks, then going down on either one of the legs.
Sciatica is a form of pinched nerve or related somehow since the nerve causing the pain is compressed and is disrupted by its normal function.
Sciatica is triggered when there is irritation on the nerve roots in the lumbar and sacral region. Sciatica could be the effect of other spinal conditions, such as herniated/bulging discs, spinal stenosis or narrowing of the spinal column, and degenerative disc disease.
Some people may conclude that the pain they experience from sciatica is more painful than other existing conditions they may have. For debilitating cases of sciatica, a person cannot perform at work, is irritated, and is prevented to make normal body movements.
Even when sciatica pain goes away after self-treatment, it is important to seek medical help. There could be some underlying medical conditions for severe pain from sciatica, and it could only lead to another condition if this is ignored.
Symptoms of sciatica:
- Shooting pain on the lower back
- Difficulty in standing up
- Difficulty in moving the leg
- Muscle weakness or numbness
- Pain in the hips
- Pain relieved when sitting or lying down
