It is not sciatica: Leg swelling is not sciatica. See your doctor.

Unlikely sciatica: Sciatica is leg pain from nerve compression. In general if you don't have pain, it's not sciatica. Leg swelling is worrisome for a problem with venous or lymphatic drainage, have this checked out.

See Pain Specialist: You may be developing a pain syndrome called complex regional pain syndrome. This should be checked out asap so that treatments can be offered to reduce or eliminate this pain. The longer it goes on makes it harder to treat. Also, the pain could be coming from your spine and may need to be evaluated further. I would see a comprehensive pain specialist that can manage everything you need.
