"The pain may hit suddenly like a lightning bolt or it may cause a constant nagging ache, deep within your hip and buttock area." This common condition affects more than 3 million people each year in the United States. Chances are, you may never experience anything quite as painful in your entire life. Sciatica sufferers say it's like having an excruciating toothache in the leg. You don't have to suffer needlessly from sciatic pain and you shouldn't depend on medication to get the relief you're looking for. Medication only masks or covers up the symptoms; they can't correct your structural problem.
