How can you tell if sciatica is getting worse I am in pain my hip bothers me right leg weaker inner thigh numb and thigh numb?

Sciatica. Sometimes it is difficult to determine if the pain is coming from the lumbar spine, sacroiliac joint, or the hip. An MRI of the lumbar spine, pelvis, and hips and an examination by a spine or hip specialist will tell you where the pain originates. Anti-inflammatory medications, muscle relaxers, neuropathic pain medicine, and physical therapy can help to eliminate the pain.
If you are. having weakness or change in sensation meaning more numbness, recommend seeing your doctor soon. May need surgery.
