Sciatic nerve pain is quite common. Statistics show that at least four out of 10 people will experience sciatic nerve pain at least once in their lives. Sciatica is the pain that radiates down the sciatic nerve, normally from the lower back through the hips and to the buttocks, then down the legs. Normally, it only affects one side of the body as well.
During episodes of sciatic pain, it can be incredibly painful making it difficult to do typical, everyday things. Simply picking up a bag or even sitting at a desk can cause intense pain during an episode. Some of the symptoms of sciatic nerve pain are weakness, numbness, burning sensation, and most common, pain. The pain has been described in a few ways, where some claim feels like pins and needles, a feeling of electric shock, or worse, like getting stabbed with a knife.
If you or someone you know is suffering from sciatic nerve pain, here are a few tips to help alleviate the pain.

Tip 1: Wait and See

Although remaining in pain doesn’t seem like the most ideal thing, sometimes “wait and see” is one way to deal with sciatica. That’s because more often than not, around 80 to 90% of people diagnosed with sciatic nerve pain share that it does get better in a few weeks or more. Of course if the pain gets excruciating, then be sure to seek out medical treatment as soon as possible.
