Dealing with symptoms of sciatica

You may have a lot of different activities that you enjoy. However, the symptoms of sciatica may be keeping you from your favorite activities and you may not even know it. Many people do not understand what sciatica is or how closely it’s related to back pain. In fact, sciatica is often a symptom of another back problem, but you can experience many symptoms that come from sciatica itself.

The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your entire body. It starts in your lower back, runs through your buttocks and continues down the back of your leg. Its long length makes this nerve easily affected by back or leg issues, and a back or leg issue that is affecting your sciatic nerve is what is known as sciatica. You may experience several different symptoms of sciatica. Some sciatica-related symptoms include:

  • Pain in your lower back that runs down your leg
