Signs That You May Have Sciatica
Sciatica is a condition characterized by pain going down the sciatic nerve pathway which runs from the lower back to the leg. The most frequent cause of sciatica is a spinal disc herniation which puts pressure on the sciatic nerve and is present in about 90% of cases. Sciatica can be an extremely debilitating condition that can affect your everyday activities. It typically affects only one side of the body and classic symptoms include pain radiating down the back of the leg from the buttocks region.
Many people find that living with sciatica can be a nightmare. Chronic and acute pain disrupts sleep and everyday activities. If you feel like you have sciatica you should see Dr. Criscuolo immediately so he can diagnose and treat the symptoms before they worsen.
Additional Symptoms of Sciatica Include:
- Pain in the back, buttocks, hip, or lower extremities
- Leg and/or foot numbness
- The sensation of pins and needles in the legs and buttocks
- Burning sensation
- Muscle weakness
