Have you found yourself moving around quite a bit because it’s painful for you to be in one position longer than 15 minutes or so?
Have you had pain or discomfort start to creep down from your back, to your hip, the upper, or lower leg?
If any of this sounds familiar it’s likely that you do have some form of sciatica.
Usually there’s no shortage of opinions from friends or family members on what you should do about it. A lot of people have had some sort of back pain or sciatica, so there’s plenty of “you should see my guy, my girl, or my doctor” going around.
Someone may have tried to show you their own sciatica exercises and they either didn’t seem to make it better, or even might have made it worse.
