Hello,

Your symptoms seem to be related to sciatica. I recommend using anti-inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen to relieve the symptoms. Sciatica is a chronic condition, so it is not something to be overly worried about. If the symptoms continue, I recommend to see a neurologist.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
