for the medically inclined

Postby michaels » Fri Dec 23, 2011 10:36 am

Suppose you walk about three miles and your back starts to hurt, but, toward the end of the walk, you get some pain radiating into the front of your right thigh. Is that called "sciatica" even if the sciatic nerve isn't involved, or is there some other name for radiating pain not connected to the sciatic nerve?
