I have Sciatic problems. Left leg hurts, goes numb to foot. Could that be the problem? Worried about blood clot.

In brief: Why Blood Clot?

Unless you have a fever or swollen limb which may suggest a blood clot more than sciatica.
I would suggest ruling out the clot first (if you are concerned) and then workup the sciatica issue afterwards.
