I get pain from my buttocks and down my leg, but I also get the burning sensation in my hands, arms and shoulders. Is this also by the sciatica?

In brief: No

Sciatica may only apply to the symptoms in your legs.
For a full evaluation, see your primary care physician, who might end up referring you to a neurologist. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/sciatica.html
