Sciatica happens when the sciatic nerve gets irritated. This can be caused by pinching, contact from adjacent bones, tumours, or muscles, along with some other rare causes.
The sciatic nerve is the most extended nerve and thickest peripheral nerve in your body running from lower back and down to tips of your toes.
It is common during pregnancy for sciatica to become irritated.
Often the symptoms of sciatica are
- Tingling in the lower back to the upper buttocks and back of thigh
- Lumbar pain
- Hip pain
- Leg pain
- Impaired ability to walk
