No: These symptoms are too widespread to be a nerve pinch. Gentle stretching, antiimflammatories like Motrin or Aleve, (naproxen) heat, and keeping active but not overdoing it should help.

MUSCULOSKELETAL PAI: Seems like you worked a lot the last 4 days. Usually your muscles ache but to rule out back pain with sciatica you need to see MD.
