Sciatica Nerve Pain

test

Do you experience shooting pain down the lower back to your buttocks and legs? Does this disrupt your daily routine or make simple household tasks more difficult? This is a key sign of a pinched sciatic nerve.

What is the sciatic nerve?

The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body. It runs from your lower back, under your hips, through your buttocks to each leg. The sciatic nerve branches into smaller nerves in the thighs, legs, and feet. These nerves provide sensation to your legs and control many of the muscles in your thighs and feet. The term sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of this particular nerve.

How do I know if I have sciatica?

When you experience the symptoms of sciatica, it is important to seek professional help. Sciatic pain is not only uncomfortable but can progressively become harder to manage. Telltale signs of a pinched sciatic nerve are:

  • Sharp pain originating in the lower back and continuing down through buttocks and legs
  • Numbness, tingling, and muscle weakness in the leg
  • Burning sensation or excruciating pain
  • A jolting or shock like sensation in the leg
