Have you been experiencing any of the following symptoms?

  • Lower back pain
  • tingling or pins-and-needles sensations in your leg
  • pain that you’d describe as burning or searing
  • difficulty moving your leg
  • horrible pain when you stand from a sitting position
  • numbness of a leg, foot, or buttock

On top of that, are the above conditions tending to affect only one side of your body? And are they worse when you are sitting down or standing, but tend to get better when you’re walking or lying down?

If you’ve experienced any or all of the above, your might be having symptoms associated with sciatic nerve pain, also known as sciatica. Sciatica isn’t a diagnosis of a condition but is a collection of the symptoms above that are the result of pressure being put on the sciatic nerve, which is the longest and widest single nerve in the human body. This pressure is usually brought about by a herniated disc or other spinal problem, as the sciatic nerve begins at the bottom of the spine and travels to the foot.
