Brief Answer: Constipation may be cause. Water, fiber, Exercise. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your reply. As you have Constipation for several days, it may be cause for your Sciatica. Straining at stool may increase the intra-abdominal pressure and could cause increased strain in the sciatic nerve. Drink plenty of water. Eat plenty of fiber rich fruits and vegetables. Exercise regularly. If these are not helpful, then CT and MRI lumbar spine is essential to rule out any slipped disc. Hope this helps. Please write back for further queries. Wishing you good health.
