Sciatica?
« on: August 18, 2014, 07:35:10 PM »
Hi was wondering if you can get sciatica pain just in calf, or for it to be sciatica, does it have to travel down the leg from the thigh?? Got stabbing ache pain in calf, that keeps throbbing! Does this sound like Nerve pain or muscle pain? Fed up of not knowing the difference.

Yes it is possible to only have sciatica pain in one part of your leg.

Typically sciatica runs across your lower back to the outside of your leg. the sciatica nerve is about the width of your thumb, it is one of the largest nerves in the body. 

I have had it where I had wrap around pain on my thigh, and other times my leg was fine but my toes would go numb---it all depends where the impingement of the nerve is located

Sure is!  Right now I'm having it on the front of my thigh.  Yesterday it was just in my foot.
