In brief: Paresthesia

Paresthesia is a condition that arises when the peripheral nerves get pressed.
Initially, it gives a pricking sensation under the skin and later on, leads to recurrent burning sensation. Sciatica is a nerve problem which occurs when the sciatic nerve is pressed by a slipped disc in the lower back. See a neurologist.
