Sciatica doesn’t have to slow you down.
The sciatic nerve is one of the largest nerves in the human body, running down both legs from your lower back. So it’s no wonder it can have a direct effect on many parts of your body, especially your buttocks and legs. If you have a condition known as sciatica, you may experience constant pain in one leg and not the other, a sensation of “pins and needles” down your legs, or shooting pains that make it difficult to stand.
What causes sciatica? Anything that puts pressure on your sciatic nerve can cause these symptoms. One of the most common causes is a bulging or herniated disc in your lumbar (lower back) region.
