Sciatica, or sciatic pain, is a general term for inflammation of a sciatic nerve.
Depending on the area of the nerve affected, the symptoms might be pain in the lower back, buttocks, or the lower extremity, paresis (weakness) of the leg, numbness in the buttock and of the lower extremity, and dysfunction of reflexes. The pain might radiate widely, but usually it follows the direction of the nerve.
According to traditional Chinese medicine sciatic pain results from damp heat and dysfunction of the urinary bladder meridian.
