A few months ago my ankle started hurting. I had it X-rayed

Customer Question

A few months ago my ankle started hurting. I had it X-rayed and it was fine. My dr told me to wrap it for two weeks. Now my sciatic is bothering me in the same leg and I have pain off and on and it feels cold and wet sometimes
JA: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Any redness or swelling in the leg?
Customer: No redness or swelling. Sitting makes it worse
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have type 2 Diabeties.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Neurologist about your situation and then connect you two.

Thanks for this question

This is pretty classic lumbar radiculopathy

This means a nerve in your low back is being pinched

I would recommend good physio to start or chiropractic therapy

have you done either?
