Sciatica is a symptom and not a disease where lower back pain will radiate into the buttocks and into the legs. Pain may not extend past the knee, but more severe cases will see pain into the lower legs, feet and toes. In addition to pain, a person may also feel weakness, numbness, or tingling in the lower back and into the legs.
