Can Sciatica Cause Your Leg To Swell Also A Feeling Of Pressure In Foot And Ankle.


Swelling is not a common symptom of sciatica. Common sciatica symptoms include

feeling numbness or tingly sensations, pain, weakness, trouble moving your leg or controlling its movements. Sometimes coughing or straining or stooping or sitting in one position will accentuate sciatica.

Swelling may be caused by many things including some kidney or liver problems or from an obstructed vein or other things. Sometimes there is no clear reason for leg swelling but it's a symptom you should definitely get checked out. Be sure to consult with your physician on this. Good luck!
