Sciatica: Your symptoms suggest pressure on the spinal nerves from a bulging or herniated disc. Most patients with back pain or sciatica improve after several weeks. OTC NSAIDS like ibuprofen will help if you have no history of peptic ulcer disease. See your physician if increasingly severe pain, numbness or weakness in the leg, or if not improving.
