What is Sciatica?
If you are suffering from Sciatica it can be a symptom of a much bigger problem. It is a common occurrence of the narrowing of the spine, when a herniated disc compresses part of the nerve. Sciatica results in swelling, pain and numbness in your leg. There are two types of pain a patient can experience with Sciatica. First, there is a dull pain which is usually resolved within a few weeks. However, in the case of severe pain the patient may need thorough treatment and care. If you have severe Sciatica associated with bladder or bowel changes and significant leg weakness, you may be in need of surgery.
Let's look at some of the common symptoms of Sciatica.
- Constant pain on one leg or side of the buttocks
- Increased pain when sitting
- Leg pain that is akin to tingling, burning or even searing
- A sharp pain making it difficult for you to stand or walk
