Nerve traction: Anything that tugs/pulls the irritated sciatic nerve, or makes a bulging lumbar spine disk bulge out more on to the nerve roots.

Sciatic pain: The sciatic pain is usually caused by nerve impingement/irritation. The sciatic nerve pain might worsen at anytime if the impingement or irritation increased. Some of the possible causes might be position change, worsening bulging disc, osteophytes ....

Yes: However certain positions may make pain worse. typically herniated disks are worse with position in which your spine is flexed.
