Sleeping with Sciatica Pain

Living with sciatica can be especially frustrating when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep. While there are no clear-cut solutions for people with sciatic nerve pain, these simple tips may help you find enough relief to sleep through the night.

First Things First … What Is Sciatica?

There are five sciatic nerve roots in your lower back which extend through your hips, buttocks and down the back of each leg. When one or more of these nerves become irritated, inflamed or compressed – usually as a result of a herniated or ruptured intervertebral disc – it typically causes pain, tenderness or numb/tingling sensations to radiate throughout the leg. This pain is referred to as sciatica and generally only affects one side of the body.
