The term sciatica is given to a specific pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve. This is a lengthy and important nerve that travels from the lower back, through the hips and buttocks and down each of your legs. It usually only affects one side of the body and can come on very suddenly as a sharp pain, or linger as a dull ache. Sciatica is usually caused when something compresses a section of the sciatic nerve.
