13 Sciatica Symptoms You Should Know

Neurological issues

Since sciatica is caused by pressure on your sciatic nerve, one of the most important nerves in your body, the most common symptom often comes from your neurological system. Generally, you will experience some issues with your nervous system, especially in the legs. In worse cases, it might deteriorate quickly and cause serious damages to your sciatic nerves. This eventually leads to some other conditions such as numbness, tingling, or weakness. If you notice these symptoms which happen following trauma or accident, it is necessary to get immediate medical attention from your doctor. If he or she discovers that the sciatic nerve is compressed, then surgery like lumbar laminectomy or lumbar microdiscectomy might be needed to alleviate these signs. [2]
