Sciatica is a radiating nerve pain
The sciatic nerve (ischiatic nerve) is the longest nerve in the body and runs from the lower back to the back of the upper leg, up to the foot. Sciatica is a nerve pain caused by irritability, inflammation or damage to the nerve. Sciatica can be caused by pressure on the nerve, for example, due to pregnancy or by having the wrong posture which is taxing for the back. Although the symptoms of sciatica vary, most of the symptoms are often felt in the back, legs and buttocks.
