THE MOST COMMON CAUSE IS:-

With increased pressure on the gel like mass or by a weakness in the ring, a portion of gel is squeezed out, as a hernia. Hernia can press the sciatic nerve. If the spinal canal is narrow, the nerves from the spinal cord come under pressure. It can also cause pain along the sciatic nerve, or along other nerves.
