The sciatic nerve is a long nerve that emerges from your lower spine and runs down the back of each leg, into the soles of your feet. Sometimes the sciatic nerve becomes compressed, impinged, or irritated; this condition is called sciatica.
If you have sciatica, you may experience pain that shoots down your leg, numbness, and tingling. Your symptoms may range from mild to severe, and they may be constant or intermittent. Usually, sciatica only affects one side of the body, but sometimes it can alternate sides or be present on both sides at the same time.
A wide range of conditions can contribute to the compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve. Some conditions that may cause sciatica include:
Jobs that require prolonged sitting or that put stress on the lower back may cause sciatica. Being overweight or obese, or leading a sedentary lifestyle, may also contribute to the condition.
