Abdominal pain spreading to sciatic nerve, hip & back. Could holding urine for long time caused so?

I have pain in my abdomen (lower left quadrant) that goes through to my sciatic nerve , my hip, and into my back as well. I was at work today for 8 hours and had to hold my urine for more than an hour at one point amd more than 30 minutes another time. Could that be the cause of my pain? I also have an abnormal curvature in my spine, so sciatic pain isn t completely unheard of for me, though it isn t common.

Anatomical deformity of the spine pose many problems.
Due to pre existing condition like this voluntary retention of urine may not be the cause for the pain.
An MRI of the spine can find the cause of the problem.
Consult an orthopedician for more help.
