If sciatic nerve pain is making your life miserable, here are some tips to relieve your pain.
Sciatica is pain, tingling, or numbness produced by an irritation of the nerve roots that lead to the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is formed by the nerve roots coming out of the spinal cord into the lower back. It goes down through the buttock, and then its branches extend down the back of the leg to the ankle and foot.
What causes sciatica nerve pain?
The most common cause of sciatica is a bulging or ruptured disc (herniated disc) in the spine pressing against the nerve roots that lead to the sciatic nerve.
Do I have sciatic nerve pain?
Symptoms of sciatica include pain that begins in your back or buttock and moves down your leg and may move into your foot. Weakness, tingling, or numbness in the leg may also occur.
What should I do if I have Sciatic Nerve Pain?
In many cases sciatica pain will resolve on its own without treatment, but it can potentially lead to permanent nerve damage and will often reoccur if you don’t take action. First, realize what’s causing it. Anything that causes increased stress on your spine can increase your risk, and this includes not only obesity and diabetes (which increases your risk of nerve damage) but also other issues such as:
- Prolonged sitting
- Twisting your back
- Carrying heavy loads
- Driving a vehicle for long periods of time
Although medications are commonly prescribed for the treatment of sciatica, evidence for analgesics is poor. Specifically non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSIADS) e.g. ibuprofen, do not appear to improve immediate pain and all NSAIDs appear about equivalent. Evidence is also lacking in use of opioid pain pills and muscle relaxants.
