Hello sir, I am not sure whether I am suffering from sciatica pain or not. When I read symptoms from internet I feel as I am having it. Sometimes I have pain in my right leg and sometime in left one. Pain starts from lumbar region and goes till the toe. Please tell whether I am suffering from sciatica or not. Thank you.

Firstly avoid self diagnosis with information obtained from Internet. It can harm you psychologically . Information provided on Internet is just for educational purposes. For accurate diagnosis and treatment you should consult a doctor. As regards to your symptoms it could be Sciatica, but for confirmation you need to be examined physically by your doctor and also may need tests like MRI Scan of Lumbo sacral spine.
