I have no idea of what it is. Both sides of my hips, running down the L leg some, being quite painful with movement, sitting, turning in bed, walking, and it does itch. Never had anything like this before. I am concerned with this.

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.
