False Sciatica: What it is and how to determine it?
Not every pain in your buttocks or thighs or legs is sciatica. People suffering from nerve compression or having neuromuscular pain get confused whether it is sciatica or something else. There is a term used for wrong sciatica problem, i.e., ‘meralgia paresthetica’. This is a condition, which occurs when the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve gets compressed as it goes under the inguinal ligament, which is present in the pelvis. Inguinal ligament is present in the groin that tethers & compresses the nerve when you gain weight.
