It is pain that radiates from the lower back, through the buttocks and down the back of the leg – following the course of the sciatic nerve. It usually affects only one side of the body. Sciatica often occurs due to a herniated or slipped disc or narrowing of the spinal canal/foramen, causing compression on the nerve. The disc can be bulging slightly or fully prolapsed, either way this causes pressure on the nerves and subsequent irritation. Symptoms may include pain, tingling, numbness in the buttock, back of the thigh, calf, foot and toes. Although the pain may not extend this far.  It can become worse on coughing or sneezing or after prolonged sitting. You should seek urgent medical care if you have sudden, severe pain in your low back or leg and numbness or muscle weakness in your leg or if you have trouble controlling your bowels or bladder. 
diagnosing sciatica will be through physical examination initially, where reflexes and muscle strength tests will be performed. If required, you may be sent for further diagnostic imaging like MRI scan, however this is not always required. Treatment options are plenty depending on the underlying cause including pain killer medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications to reduce the inflammation of the nerve, a well-structured exercise program, nerve root block or surgical intervention.
