Sciatica: Back And Leg Pain That Can Really Hurt.

The sciatic nerve extends from the lower back and down the backside of the legs. Because the root of the lower lumbar and lumbosacral spine is irritated, many people suffer from sciatica pain that can range from mild to extreme cases. It can be caused by one vertebrae slipping over another, also referred to as Spondylolisthesis. Sometime Sciatica can be onset by pregnancy, infection, scar tissue, muscle strain, spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease in the lower back. A lumbar herniated disc – sometimes called a slipped disc, ruptured disc or protruding disc is one of the leading causes of sciatica. This is when the soft inner core of the disc leaks out or protrudes from the disc and irritates the adjacent nerve root.

Sciatica pain may include one or several of the following painful symptoms:

• Tingling or burning feeling down the leg (Usually one side or the other)
• Pain in the buttocks or legs is more severe when sitting down
• Numbness, weakness or pain when moving the legs or feet
• Difficulty standing up, due to shooting pain down the legs
• Pain in the rear that is constant on one side

Typically one side of the lower body is affected by sciatica pain. The pain may extend through the foot to the toes, depending on where the sciatic nerve is affected. Sciatica pain may be only occasional irritation, but has the potential to become severe and debilitating.
