Sciatic Nerve Pain: The Sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the human body, and is about the diameter of your little finger. The nerve runs from the base of your spine, through the buttock into the back of your leg, to the side of the calf muscle, through your ankle into the top of your foot and ends at your big toe.
Sciatic Nerve Pain – Symptoms: Sciatica nerve pain usually starts in the lower back, but you will experience most of the pain in your legs and buttocks, in the hip, and anywhere along the path of the nerve. The pain is usually on one side, but it is possible to have pain on both sides (Bi-lateral Sciatica) but this is rare.
Classic symptoms of Sciatica are pins and needles, tingling or crawling sensations which can be felt anywhere along the path of the nerve, you may also get cramping pains in your lower back, buttocks or legs as the muscles contract and become imbalanced.
You may find standing or sitting painful or difficult, and also find that your body is tilted towards the side of the pain. Coughing and sneezing can also aggravate the situation.
Sciatica Nerve Pain – Causes: Sciatica is caused when the sciatic nerve becomes inflamed or irritated. This can happen for one or all of the following reasons -:
- A Vertebrae in your lower back is not moving properly, or is out of position.
- The joint becomes inflamed and irritates the Sciatic nerve. If one of your discs is bulging (Herniated or Slipped Disc) this can put pressure on the sciatic nerve, which again can become inflamed.
- If a muscle in your lower back tightens this can put pressure on the Sciatic Nerve.
