If something presses the lumbar nerve this causes pain in the sciatic nerve. For example, herniated disc, degenerative disk issue, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, vertebrae abnormalities all press the nerve.
Sciatica is with leg pain, weakness, numb feelings, tingling, lower back pain that goes to the buttock and goes down the sciatic nerve to the leg.
Sadly this pain is too harsh and even impairs movements. Also it gets worse at night, after sitting or standing, sneezing, coughs and stress.
The regular treatments mean painkillers by a doctor. But you can also do some simple workouts for stretching along meds to remove this terrible pain.

Here are the simple stretches for removing inflammation and pain.
First, this might be hard since you have to start slowly and increase as you breath out. Lye down on the floor, bend the hurting leg. When you feel the stretch, stay like that for ½ min.
