Sciatica is not a stand-alone medical condition but rather a set of symptoms described as persistent pain along the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back through the buttocks and into the lower leg, is the longest and widest nerve in the body, and it controls the muscles of the lower leg and provides sensation to the thighs, legs and feet. A common form of lower back pain, sciatica can range from radiating pain along the nerve to a dull ache to a mild tingling to a burning sensation.
