Sciatica is a rather common type of pain. It affects the sciatic nerve, which is a large nerve going from the lower back down the back of each leg. Usually, only one side of the lower body is affected by sciatica, and the pain often concentrates an area expending from the lower back through the back of the thigh, and all the way down the leg. It’s possible for the pain to be present in the foot or toes, depending on where the sciatic nerve is affected.
Symptoms: Symptoms of sciatica include burning or tingling down the leg, weakness, numbness, constant pain on one side of the rear, a shooting pain that makes it difficult to stand up, and difficulty moving the leg or foot.
