Oh dear! I can’t move! Every single little movement feels like hell!
Woke up with a sharp pain and cannot move?
This has happened to me at least 3 times in my life.
Chances are the sciatic nerve is involved.
Because it is the LARGEST single nerve in the human body and,
It runs from each side of the lower spine (the lumbar and sacrum) through deep into the buttocks and then into the back of the thigh… And… then into the leg and foot muscles.
What Causes Sciatic and Leg Pain?
If a nerve is compressed and it touches the sciatic nerve you will feel it. And it won’t be pleasant
Also, there is a variety of issues, including financial troubles, that can cause sciatica pain.
Anything that affects your lower back, like bad posture, or driving for hours will make it worse.
You can also have an irritated sciatic nerve running under the performs muscle in the buttock.
And when the pirformis gets irritated you feel a pinch at the nerve root.
Such pinch is painful!
