two weeks ago I woke up in the morning feeling no pain or injury of any kind.after starting to walk around I felt pain building on top of my left leg below the knee, the sudden onset and severity scared me The more I walked around the more the pain became severe. So severe, I had to sit down. Upon sitting the pain disappeared. I also found that if I walk slightly bent over the pain is less severe.I have been off work for week trying rest and anti-inflammatory medication which my doctor prescribe. X-rays were done, but I've not have an MRI. the doctors said I had Sciatica which I know is a general term and not a diagnosis. from the description I gave can anyone tell me what is most likely causing my problem.
