Symptoms of Sciatica

The sciatic nerve branches from the lower back and down the legs and it is through this path that the pain associated with sciatica is typically experienced. This pain can vary from sometimes mild to severe and can lead to weakness in the affected area or other times, numbness. A painful tingling of the limbs is also a common symptom, this discomfort tends to worsen when walking or moving and is typically limited to one side of the body.
