    Yes, been there done that. Sciatica pain. I have a bulging lumbar disc. If I stay away from the chiropractor too long, I go back to sciatica pain. As long as my spine keeps moving, I'm fine.

    sciatic nerve pain is usually from a bulging lower lumbar disc, but can be from other things as well, such as if the muscle that rotates the leg outward is too tight, also an impingement or irritation of the sciatic nerve in the area of the knee can cause pain along the entire length of the nerve - just as it can if the impingement or irritation is higher on up.

    You really need to get it checked out to see what is causing it in order to know what to do about it.

    Wishing you well.
