In brief: Sciatica pain

A pain specialist should be the first doctor you should see.
If not already, get an MRI to confirm it is sciatica (piinched nerve that contributes to the sciatic nerve). Regular exercises are necessary and avoid prolonged sitting, slouching and lifting heavy objects in a wrong manner. Use knees and hips while lifting rather than bending down.
