sciaticaSciatica is a disorder that affects the sciatic nerve.  The sciatic nerve is the major nerve that starts at the bottom of the spine and runs down the back of the leg into the foot.  This condition generally occurs when this nerve is compressed by a herniated disc or by a tight piriformis muscle deep to the glutes.  Occasionally a tumor, blood clot or sitting in an awkward position may compress the nerve.  Possible symptoms may include sharp shooting pain down the leg, numbness/tingling and weakness in the affected area.
