Possible Job Injury: What you have described appears to be the symptoms of sciatica, which may be from a disc herniation. If there was a reported work accident, then the care in most cases would be through his worker compensation coverage. If no accident resulted in this pain, the determination of whether or not it is associated with his job may need to be determined by his treating doctor.
