About 3 months ago I started to feel a horrible ache in my bottom cheeks and down the back of my legs, I have always suffered with back pain and lately my back has started making a horroble clicking noise when I walk and been feeling sore at the base of my spine and at the top of my bottom crack. I am due for an MRI in two weeks as my doctor thinks I may have sciatica, but recently I have started to experience a pain of burning and aching around the outside of my vagina, I have heard that it could be nerve damage due to sciatica, has anybody else heard of this?
Hi...from what I read online Sciatica occurs when there is pressure or damage to the sciatic nerve. This nerve starts in the lower spine and runs down the back of each leg. This nerve controls the muscles of the back of the knee and lower leg and provides sensation to the back of the thigh, part of the lower leg, and the sole of the foot.
Common causes of sciatica include:
Piriformis syndrome (a pain disorder involving the narrow muscle in the buttocks)
Pelvic injury or fracture
Since u have issues in the groin area it is possibly referred pain or, until u know the cause may be directly related....not too far off from the area where u may be affected with this....
