Sciatic Nerve Pain symptoms can include lower back, hip, and leg pain. Numbness, tingling, or weakness in the buttock, leg, and foot. The sciatic nerve originates from your lower back, so even though you are having pain down the back of your leg, the issue could be coming from your back. A common cause is a herniated or slipped disk that causes pressure on the nerve root. Your spin is pressing against nerve roots that lead down to the sciatic nerve, hence the name. Sciatica is a common complaint amongst Canadians, especially those who suffer from lower, acute or chronic back pain. According to Harvard Health Online, up to 40% of people will get in during their lifetime.
