Sciatica is commonly the result of irritation or pressure upon the nerve on the sciatic nerve, at either the root or the periphery. For many people, the pain from sciatica can be excruciating and debilitating, sometimes making standing or sitting difficult or impossible. Even the term you choose to describe your pain gives a clinical clue to your doctor of your diagnosis, so explain fully what you feel. Because sciatica is a sign of something else, a very thorough examination should be performed to pinpoint exactly what is irritating the sciatic nerve.
