Recently, probably due to my weight issues, I have noticed that my sciatica nerve plays up when I do physical activity (walking or running for long-ish periods). It isn't problem enough that I can't do my exercise, but afterwards it does tend to ache when I move around.
What I would like to know is if anyone has any tips on stretches or general management/prevention of the pain?
I have seen a doctor about it, while I was in asking about different aches and pains, and not much attention was given to it-which makes me think that the pain I'm getting isn't cause for surgery or pain relief (if you know what I mean?).
I only have one stretch where I pull my knee up to my chest, and then I grab my ankle and bring that to my stomach. I feel it stretching my nerve, though sometimes I can feel pain during my workout.
