Sciatica or piriformis syndrome??? That is the question!
The sciatic nerve: It’s the longest nerve in your body and originates in your lower spine all the way down to your toes! The term sciatica often comes up when someone experiences numbness, and tingling that extends from the buttocks, down the leg and into their toes. Often caused by a herniated disc, or degenerative disc, or a pesky muscle called the piriformis. Check in tomorrow to see if you’re suffering from true sciatica, or if your piriformis is the cause.
