 Pain that radiates from your low back  your buttock and down the back of your leg is called sciatica. Sciatica may be accompanied by numbness, tingling and muscle weakness in the affected leg. This pain can vary widely, from a mild ache to a sharp, burning sensation or excruciating discomfort. Sometimes it may feel like a jolt or electric shock.  Sciatic pain often starts gradually and intensifies over time. It’s likely to be worse when you sit, cough or sneeze.
