I need some help to understand exactly what sciatic pain is and how it feels. I have never suffered from back problems, so when a neuro asks me whether I have sciatica-type pain I’m at a loss. And you know what it’s like when you see a neuro. You’re always worried about overstating things or saying the wrong thing.
I do not get shooting pains that go from my back down my leg which is sort of what I imagine it must be. I do however have more aching style pains that can sometimes encompass my left but and upper leg. Is this what you would term as sciatica-style pain? I’m suspecting not.
Thanks for any help you can give to demystify this for me.
