Back pain is a very common condition, albeit a uniquely experienced one. Ranging from the dull or throbbing aches of spine osteoarthritis to the shooting, sharp pain of a ruptured disc, back pain can also come and go, be constant, worsen with exercise or prolonged sitting, and/or be associated with neurological symptoms like numbness and tingling. While back pain can be frustrating and debilitating, the upside is that the majority of episodes of back pain improve or resolve with minimal care, and usually within a few weeks.
Sciatica refers to compression or pinching of the sciatic nerve, often caused by a herniated disc or bone spur. An injury or trauma to the pelvis, buttocks, or thigh, diabetes, prolonged sitting, and piriformis syndrome—when a small muscle in the buttocks spasms and irritates the sciatic nerve—may also cause sciatica.
Because your sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body (running from the base of the spine down both legs), compression of it may lead to lower back pain that spreads into the buttocks, and down the legs into the soles of the feet (usually on one side). In addition to burning and/or cramping pain, patients may experience tingling, numbness, and muscle weakness
