    Hi Sandra,

    Sciatica is not a diagnosis but rather a symptom root cause being anything from a ruptured intervertebral disc,nerve impingment,facet joint syndrom,trigger points i the gluteal musculature,sacroiliac joint disfunction etc.

    The burning sensation and restless legs suggjests nerve irritation,first thing that comes to mind is magnesium deficiency.Calciun powers nerve conductability but only in coop. with magnesium.Are the symptoms aggrevated at night?Some studies have shown that strenious exercise,advancing age can cause up to 80%magnesium deficiency in some populations.

    Having sufffered with sciatica and rlg syndrome supposedly as symptoms for me started in twenties occasionally to fully in all limbs I now query diagnoses . I feel Sciatca is usually deep soarness and twingy pain .Recently terrible blow tourch pain in feet and sharp pains too. This pain makes me hobble and walking worsens pain the worst soarness of feet I have expereinced .Wish you knowledge and be brave to ask a lot of questions til you have answers. Neurological pain is waste . I hope you have more success a lot quicker than I have. Rest Leg Syndrome is not recognised by all I understand . Hence then why does it involve arms. You may have it only in one place and come to a good end . Keep going ask for help if disrupting your life.

    I suffer from RLSand have really bad bouts about 3 times a week. Before the on set I have itchy burning feet and knees, 'fuzzy' mind being unable to concentrate and hunger feelings. I hve to stand on cold floors to get some relief. I take 3 mg of Ropinerole a day. Don't know if anyone else experiences these symptoms?
