The pains of sciatica are very tormenting and excruciating compelling one to weep. Pain killers have very temporary effect on this condition. Homoeopathy is sure option before you to get cured for life for this painful condition.
Sciatica are two longest and widest nerves of our body starting from lower spine to the foot. It starts from lower back and runs to back of each leg. It controls the muscles of back, lower spine, legs and knees. It provides sensation to the lower spine, back of thigh lower legs and soles of feet sciatica is irritation and inflammation
The pain of sciatic is typically felt in the low back region of spine (lumbar region) to behind thigh and extending and radiating to down below the knee and may travel further to sole of feet. The striking point about sciatic nerve is that it is the largest nerve of human body and begins from the nerve roots in the lower back or lumbar spinal cord and extends from there to back of buttocks and lower extremities.
Nature of pain
The pain of sciatica nerve is very excruciating and shooting type. Sometimes it comes in waves like electric shocks. It may also burn like fire relived by hot application. The leg may go to sleep with tingling sensation. The pain may vary from slightly annoying to totally crippling and unbearable type.. The pain may be so severe, at sometimes that it may compel the patient to get out of bed. The most common cause of sciatica observed by physician is “lumbar disc herniation” directly pressing or compression the nerve. Sciatica is generally caused by the compression of lumbar nerves L4 or L5 or sacral nerves S1, S2, or S3, or by compression of the sciatic nerve itself. Pelvic injury or Tumors may also cause sciatica. Trauma to the spine such as from a car accident may also lead to sciatica pain.
