Brief Answer: ?Sciatica Detailed Answer: Hello, Welcome to healthcare magic. I understand that you are suffering from pain and itching radiating from your hips to your legs. From your history and description, it could be a condition called as Sciatica. This occurs due to the compression of a nerve called sciatic nerve in the buttock area. Could you give me these additional details so that we could assess better? 1. For how many days have you had this pain? 2. Do you have any lower back pain? 3. Did you undertake any activity which included lifting heavy weights? 4. Do you have diabetes? 5. Do you see any rash? Please get back to me with the clarifications. Regards, Dr. Johny Chacko
