You mean nerve not : Vein. Usually the sciatic nerve involves the pathway you're describing. Normally most people don't have pain symptoms from veins, unless there's a varicose vein that's very painful that might be in your mom's leg. She needs to see her PCP for further medical advice, and S/he will recommend PT, meds your mom can take. Also a DO, or doctor of osteopathic medicine can provide osteopathic treatment for relief. ...Read more
