Would a pinched sciatic nerve cause pain in wrists and numbness/tingling in hands or feet?

Feet maybe, hands no: The sciatic nerve runs from the gluteal region (your rear end) down the back of your leg, then branches to innervate the back of the thigh and leg as well as the outer part of the lower leg and then parts of the feet.

Why does topamax cause tingling in hands and feet?

Mechanism of action: The drug does affect numerous neurotransmitters and certainly in some affects acid-base balance (adverse event is metabolic acidosis). Any of these mechanisms could promote paresthesias. However, patients have mitigated this by ingestion of bananas or dried apricots, sources of potassium plus other ingredients. ...Read more

I would hold off taking the Levaquin until you see your doctor tomorrow (unless you're treating a serious infection like pneumonia or pyelonephritis). ...Read more
