1.Why It Hurts
Sciatic nerves go from your lower back into your legs. When something presses on them, like a slipped disk or a bone spur, you get sciatica. You might have a burning sensation, numbness, weakness, or pain. Some people say it feels like pins and needles, while others say it’s more like getting an electrical shock or being stabbed with a knife. However it feels to you, there are many ways to get relief.
2.Give It Time
“Wait and see” might not be what you want to hear when you’re in pain, but it works. The passage of time is probably the best proven treatment. About 80%-90% of people with sciatic nerve pain get better within a few weeks.
