Sciatica is a condition when you have pain going all the way down the back of your leg and sometimes even feels like its shooting out of your foot. This occurs because of an irritation in the sciatic nerve which can come from a disc herniation, muscle spasms, or other ailments. The sciatic nerve starts at the low back and runs down the back of the leg. When irritations occur, in addition to pain, you may feel numbness and tingling, or weakness in your leg.
