Pain that radiates from your lower (lumbar) spine to your buttock and down the back of your leg is the hallmark of sciatica. You might feel the discomfort almost anywhere along the nerve pathway, but it's especially likely to follow a path from your low back to your buttock and the back of your thigh and calf. The pain can vary widely, from a mild ache to a sharp, burning sensation or excruciating pain. Sometimes it can feel like a jolt or electric shock. It can be worse when you cough or sneeze, and prolonged sitting can aggravate symptoms. Usually only one side of your body is affected. The types of drugs that might be prescribed for sciatica pain include: Anti-inflammatories Muscle relaxants Narcotics Tricyclic antidepressants Anti-seizure medications...along with physiotherapy... Consult nearest orthopedic surgeon they will do the needful
