Pinched nerve in ---: The back, most likely from a herniated disk (s).

Sciatica: Sound like you are experiencing nerve pain due to nerve compression. Sometimes, your symptoms might improve over time. If symptoms persist, please see a pain specialist, orthopedic spine doctor or neurosurgeon for evaluation.
