Hi there i suffer health anxiety so this may be a long post.. I went to my doctor a few weeks ago as i had been having pain in my right buttock , burning/pinching sensation in my thigh the doctor told me i had a trapped nerve in my back and sent me on my way with naproxen( has not helped) . But the past 2 weeks the pain has spread down to my calf and back of my heel . It sometimes feels prickly , sometimes feels as though its burning but when i check to see if its hot its the same temp as my other leg. I can walk and it doesnt hurt but when im sat down or laying down or stand still for a long period of time it aches/feels like its being pinched. Its not terrible pain . Im worried about dvt . But i was just wondering if this sounds like sciatica? I have 4 small children and experianced severe back pain and pains like this when i was pregnant so im just wondering if this could be the problem . Any input would be very helpfull x thanks in advance.
