Like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome the condition known as "Sciatica" gets thrown around by many medical professionals as if it is some sort of silver-bullet-diagnosis that covers any and all nerve related leg pain.
Sciatica is weakness, numnbess, tingling, and/or pain in the leg. It can appear with any and all of the previously mentioned symptoms. SCIATICA IS A SYMPTOM, NOT A CAUSE.
The cause of sciatica is often difficult to discern for physican who has not been properly trained on the diagnosis and treatment of neuropathies. The cause can by anything from a ruptured lumbar intervertebral disc in your low back to the bad habit of sitting on a hard seat with your wallet in your back pocket... There are hundreds of other possible causes inbetween.
