Sciatica: A problem with either blood vessels or nerve could cause your symptoms however, at your age this is most likely related to your back and the sciatic nerve. The cause of irritation to the sciatic nerve is either a disc pressing on a portion of the nerve or narrowing of an area where the nerve comes out. If this continues, you should see an M.D. Avoid lifting, pushing, pulling anything heavy. ...Read more
