Right leg numb after sciatica. How to get back to normal? Any trapped nerve?

Hi, I had sciatica a few years ago which left the right side of my body especially my leg numb for a few months. The sensation did come back but not fully on half my foot and two of my toes. My calf is also still slightly numb and cramps up when I go running. Is there anything I can do to get it back to normal? Is it a trapped nerve from the sciatica? Also when I go to the toilet and only for doing a number two, I can pins and needles in my numb foot?? Thanks

Hi Dear
Welcome to the platform of Health Care Magic.
Dear friend Sciatic Nerve compression causes the pain ( Sciatica). Now compression part has gone beyond the limits and now it is almost blocking all the sensations. So Please consult immediately to orthopedic Surgeon.He will try to relieve you by giving some traction to your limb for some duration and if this do not relieve your symptoms then he may advice you the nerve release surgery to save your nerve and its function.
Hope your query is answered.
