Does any one on here know if sciatica can cause the upper leg or thigh to stay swelled. I have had right leg hip pain with pretty severe swelling of the upper leg for about 6 months now. I do have all my L disk ruptured,spinal stenosis and nerve inpinchment. The dr keeps giving me steriod shots in the but and ibuprofen and tramadol,but it does little for the pain and nothing for the swelling. Anyone else have a problem like this ?
