Most Common Symptoms of Sciatica

Sciatica Symptoms

If you are suffering from lower back pain or pain that extends into your upper leg, you may have sciatica. Fortunately, at Cornerstone Chiropractic in Everett, our chiropractor is here to help alleviate your pain.

Your sciatic nerve runs from your lower back and down the back of each of your legs. When that nerve is pinched, compressed, or something impinges on it, you may experience a variety of symptoms.

The Most Common Symptoms of Sciatica

The most common symptom of sciatica is a feeling of shooting pains along the nerve pathway. You may feel pain in the lower back, hips, buttocks, or back of your leg. You may feel pain in all of these places at the same time. Sufferers also may have that “pins and needles” feeling, a tingling sensation, or numbness in their feet, toes, or legs.

Typical symptoms of sciatic nerve pain include:

  • Constant pain on one side of the leg or buttocks area
  • Pain that worsens when sitting
  • Burning, tingling, or searing leg pain
  • Numbness or weakness in the leg, foot, or toes
  • Pain that radiates down the leg

You may also experience a sharp pain that makes it difficult to walk or stand up. The pain may be constant or intermittent.
