What is sciatica?

Sciatica is a problem with the sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in your body. It controls the muscles in your knee, leg, and thigh. It is characterized by pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling. The pain and other symptoms tend to start in your lower back and then extend to your leg or down to your toes, usually on one side of the body.
