What’s Causing My Sciatica Pain?



Sciatica Nerve Pain describes symptoms of leg pain and may include tingling, numbness or weakness that originates in the lower back and travels through the buttock and down the large sciatic nerve.  This Spine-Health article discusses some of the most common signs of a sciatica nerve.

  • Constant pain in only one side of the buttock or leg (rarely occurs in both legs)
  • Pain that worsens when sitting
  • Burning or tingling down the leg (vs. a dull ache)
  • Weakness, numbness or difficulty moving the leg or foot
  • A constant pain on one side of the  rear
  • A sharp pain that may make it difficult to stand up or to walk
