Symptoms of Sciatica

What are the symptoms of Sciatica?

Keep in mind that sciatica is only the result of an underlying, more significant issue. The term “sciatica” only refers to the uncomfortable feelings, such as pain, weakness, and numbness you might get as a result of what’s causing it. Generally, symptoms of sciatica include severe pain in the lower back and legs. Due to the length and size of the sciatic nerve, it’s affected area is large in size due to nerve branching. Not only might you feel pain numbness in the back and legs, but this pain can also extend down into the feet, as the sciatic nerve reaches down each leg below the buttocks. Also, pain in the hamstrings and thighs is very common. Most cases will include pain; however, there is a slight chance that one might feel little to no pain at all. Sciatica can be more severely felt when doing simple daily actions such as the following:

  • Sitting Down
  • Getting Up
  • Lifting Objects
  • Bending Over
  • Coughing
  • Sneezing

What should I do?

Although the typical sign of sciatica is a sharp pain in your lower back, don’t rule out any awkward or different feelings in the lower body as sciatica. If you feel numbness or consistently get that “pins and needles” feeling you get when your foot falls asleep, don’t hesitate to contact us and ask our experts on the issue. It’s not uncommon for people to consider these effects insignificant and go about their lives, ultimately damaging their bodies more over time. Our experts are medically and professionally trained to exam, diagnose, and treat back pain and sciatica, and waiting for something significant to happen could be further damaging, so don’t wait to ask questions until it’s too late.
