Sciatica: The sciatic nerve runs from your low back, through your gluteus muscle and down to your legs. Impingement in any part of the nerve can cause tingling. Stretching, warm compress, and anti-inflammatory medication can help alleviate your symptoms. If symptoms persist, recommend evaluation for low back disc herniation.
