a pain that originates along the sciatic nerve.
Painful condition where pain goes down along the sciatic nerve. It is ordinarily due to a herniated disc in the lumbar region of the spine, radiating to the buttocks and to the back of the thigh, to the leg or foot. Sciatica has been described in medical literature for 3,000 years, but only for sixty years has the herniated disc been attributed as the cause.

Symptoms that may constitute a medical emergency include progressive weakness in the legs or bladder/bowel incontinence. Patients with these symptoms may have "Cauda Equina Syndrome" and should seek immediate medical attention. Also See: Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction and Piriformis Syndrome
