Sciatica like pain
Hello Doc, I am having pain from my hip to my calf of one leg only. I had pain in my lower back a few months ago which went away with some excercise. Now it's been a month since I've been suffering from this pain from my hip to leg. It gets worse when I stand up. It doesn't hurt much while sitting. I went to a doctor and he asked me to get an x ray and some blood test. He told me that my uric acid is high thats why i am having this pain. I have been taking his prescription from past 2 weeks and there is no sign of relief. I am confused whether it is sciatica or something else because most of my symptoms match with that of sciatica. Also, I don't know whether i should consult a orthopedic or a neurologist. It be great if someone can help me.
