An action as simple as bending over may bring on sciatica symptoms. Standing, lifting, sitting or straining may aggravate its symptoms. The pain that starts in your lower back and radiated to your buttock and down the back of your leg is a sign of lumbar radiculopathy or sciatica. The pain is experienced when the sciatic nerve becomes compressed by inflammation or other spinal abnormalities and can vary wildly from a mild ache and discomfort to excruciating pain and difficulty walking. Symptoms of sciatica can occur in both legs, but typically present only on one side.
Since more than one nerve root may be pinched or irritated, patients may experience a combination of these symptoms.
