For 10 days now I been experiencing severe pain in my left leg. It started at first with cramping in left calf that woke me for two days. Since then the pain is like a severe dull ache which goes up my left leg. My leg feels week. It's also gone to my upper leg and groin. I'm worried sick this is a dvt but blood tests says not. It also feels sharp at times esp in upper leg. Does this sound like sciatica?

    "Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve and is typically felt in the buttocks, down the back of the leg, and possibly to the foot." - SpineHealth Website

    Could be.  If it is, there are any number of causes...

    Yours could be in there...or not.  The deal is to find the root cause and eliminate it.  Masking the pain with drugs, shots, etc. does absolutely nothing to get rid of it permanently.  Find the cause, cure the problem.

      Have no experience with that.  My wife threw a tiny clot while she was in a coma 8 years ago following her brain aneurysm surgery...lodged in her lung and got absorbed.  Docs detected it and feared more.  Since they couldn't give her blood thinners (interfered with the brain meds), they implanted an IVC Filter (little metal basket) in her sternum area to prevent any more clots coming from her legs.  After all these years, she just left it in there.

    go get an MRI to find out the cause, sounds like Sciatica, see if you can find Theraworx and use it as directed, it helps me.
