See Ya Spicy Sciatica
Sciatica is medically known as “lumbar radiculopathy.” The majority of people who develop this condition are between the ages of 30 and 50. Sciatica can be caused by a variety of sciatic nerve injuries, including arthritis, bone spurs, herniated discs, or other nerve injuries.
People with sciatica experience pain along the sciatic nerve, which is the largest nerve in your body. The sciatic nerve begins at your lower back and then splits at the base of your spine to extend further down through your buttocks, legs, and finally ends at the bottom of each foot.
Sciatica can cause pain in your back, buttocks, hamstrings, legs, and feet, and it can happen all at once. Tightness in the hip and gluteal muscles are typically to blame. As the sciatic nerve passes through these tissues, it may become compressed. You may feel a “shooting,” “stinging,” or “burning” sensation in your lower back, buttocks, legs, or feet if the sciatic nerve is compressed or irritated.
