Is is sciatica or something else?

AnonymousUserAAnonymousUser Posts: 49,731
I have been studying up on sciatica because I thought that was what I had. But the more I look into it, the more I think I don't have it. First off, I am 21 years old. I am not 100% on this, but I think I am out of the typical range for sciatica patients. Secondly, my pain began in my lower back and has moved to my buttocks only mildly. My most severe pain is in my knees and ankles on both legs. The reserach I have read says that sciatica is usually worse in the buttocks and MAY move to the legs. It also said that the pain can be stabbing or shooting. My pain is soreness. I wake up in the morning and my knee is so sore I can barely move it, with only normal activities the day before. Sciatica pain is also usually associated with pain in the back of the legs, my ankles hurt on the very top of them and my knees hurt on the sides mostly and some on the back, but not the top. Does this sound like sciatic to anyone or am I looking at something else?

  • We cannot really say one way or another, like yourself it maybe but its not typical. it never is and I recommend talking with your dr asap.
    What I and I hope I speak for others is to support and tell our experience. Like holding your hand.

    Do talk over your concerns here and maybe another who has similiar feeling too will reply.

    Good luck keep posting and hopefully we can come up with the answer you want.
