What are the Symptoms of Sciatic Nerve Pain?


Residents of Elwood, NY can receive a proper diagnosis of the underlying cause of back, buttock, and-or leg pain to determine if their condition is sciatic nerve pain.

Dr. McMonigle is a Board-Certified Neurologist with years of experience serving Elwood patients, addressing symptoms of sciatic nerve pain and lower back pain to uncover the underlying cause and keep the problem from becoming progressively worse.

Diagnosing sciatic nerve pain requires a thorough history and focused examination.

Whether your pain is moderate or incapacitating, these are a few common sciatic nerve pain symptoms:

  • Sharp jolts of pain in the back of the leg or buttock area
  • Mild to sharp pains shooting down the leg
  • Worsening pain when sitting or standing for long periods
  • Pain at the front, back, and-or sides of the thigh & leg
  • Numbness or tingling (pins & needles feeling)
  • Hip pain
  • Leg and foot weakness

It is essential to keep detailed notes about your symptoms because sciatic nerve pain or sciatica pain that originates in the lower back share symptoms with other conditions.

Call today or schedule a consultation online for a proper diagnosis.

What Causes Sciatica in Elwood Patients?


True sciatica is an irritation or injury to the sciatic nerve that originates in the buttock/gluteal area.

The characteristic mark of sciatica is pain that radiates from your lumbar (lower spine) to your buttock and down the back of your leg.

Sciatica in Elwood patients occurs as the result of medical conditions such as:

  • A herniated spinal disc
  • An overgrowth of bone on the vertebrae
  • A ruptured intervertebral disc
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Vertebral compression fracture
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spondylosis

Mild sciatica tends to go away over time. However, it is time to seek immediate medical care if you have sudden or severe pain in your lower back or leg, numbness or muscle weakness in your leg, or difficulty controlling your bowels or bladder.

Call our clinic or visit us online to schedule a consultation if your pain lasts longer than a week, is severe, or becomes progressively worse.

Why Choose Us for Lower Back Pain Treatment in Elwood?


Many cases of lower back pain are mechanical in nature, or a disruption in the way components of the spine, muscle, intervertebral discs, and nerves fit together and move.
