Do you have back pain or leg pain with standing or walking? A 30-SECOND SELF-TEST FOR SCIATICA 1. Sit on a chair and keep good posture. 2 . Straighten one of your legs out in front of you, while pointing your toes to the sky. Pay attention to how high your leg can go and if you have any pain, numbness, or tingling. 3. Place your leg back down to resting position, and repeat the same movement with the opposite leg. Do you have a shooting pain in your leg when you stand up?
Do you need to sit down for a minute for the pain to go away? Take this 30-second self-test to see if you might have SCIATICA:
What Your Results Mean: If the leg with pain, numbness or tingling does not go up as high as the other leg, you likely have Sciatica.
