Have been having knee problems for years and now sciatica down my left side pain stops at calf but have numbness and tingling down to toes. It all started with doing too many steps. Start Chiropartic, Ice and heat w/Advil, massage, EMS But finally went to dr got muscle relaxers and and steroids pills but mainly waiting on MRI in 1.5 weeks to see if something else major. Sitting seems to make it worst so I stretch
