The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body. Sciatica refers to neuralgic pain that radiates from the lumbar area to the buttock and the back of your thigh and calf. The pain is sharp, burning, tingling, excruciating, like a jolt or electric shock. Often there is also a feeling of numbness or muscle weakness in the affected areas. Usually only one leg is affected.
Causes of sciatic nerve pain are prolonged sitting, an acidification of the body, pregnancy, a herniated disc, an irritation or inflammation, weather sensitivity, a tumor, a bone spur on the spine, metabolic diseases such as diabetes and rheumatism, cold and wet, overexertion or chronic constipation.
